A Real Bishop

In the book Salt of the Earth, Peter Seewald mentions to the then Cardinal Ratzinger that St. Augustine defines his office as one who "Reprimand[s] troublemakers, comfort[s] the fainthearted, refute[s] opponents."

Ratzinger responds: "He was a real bishop."

Let us pray for our bishops that they be real bishops and stand up for the faith and morals of the Church. One such bishop is Archbishop Burke of St. Louis.
