It seems that the only news available on the the Catholic Church right now is about the scandal of sexual abuse of children by priests. My Google reader is filled with story after story, viewpoint after viewpoint, situation after situation, opinion after opinion, etc.. If you are like me, you look for articles and people who have the ability to be most insightful and helpful. One of the authors I turn to is John Allen which Vatican Radio also turn too, and even reprinted one of his recent articles. A second author is Thomas Reese, S.J., Senior Fellow of Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University. There is an excellent interview with him by Maureen Fiedler on http://interfaithradio.org/node/1290.
