Good article about Father Bourgeois

Here's a good article about Father Bourgeois;

“I never liked bullies — in high school, Latin America or the Catholic Church,” says Bourgeois. “They cause suffering to others. If I left the church I’d be allowing these bullies to do what they do.”

The Vatican excommunicated Bourgeois two years ago for his public support of women priests, the issue that raced his blood on a recent sun-dappled morning at the rectory of a friend in New Orleans.

“This is heresy at its worst — that a woman cannot become a priest, that God cannot possibly choose one,” Bourgeois told me.

It is my hope that the Benedicts, Levadas, Burkes, and so on of the church will eventually be forgotten but that in a century or so that Bourgeois will be recognized as a Saint in the Catholic Church.
