Asked what are the two or three most important issues facing the Church today, he mentions "helping our immigrant peoples" but says ZERO about all the BABIES who are being aborted in his vast Archdiocese every day, day after day, year in and year out, with no letup in sight.
And what about the worsening anti-Catholicism, contraception, sterilization, pornography, the homosexual assault on our values and institutions, etc.?
Asked if he will support more Latin in the liturgy, including use of the Tridentine Latin Mass, if the Pope encourages it, the Cardinal replies, "[O]f our 5 million Catholics, only a handful are interested in the Latin Mass. I must focus upon the 99% who need a vibrant Mass that includes them in its celebration." So much for what the Vicar of Christ might encourage!
They take away the Mass of the ages for two generations, and they badmouth it and falsely characterize it, and then they have the nerve to say nobody's interested in it!
Oye -- listen: With the Tridentine Latin Mass, our churches were PACKED and NO ONE whined, "I don't get anything out of it"; but with the "New Mass," we've seen tidal waves of Catholics stop attending Mass and then even apostasizing to Protestantism, cults, etc.
So which Mass is "vibrant" and which Mass includes the congregation? Yes, the Tridentine Latin Mass. Find an indult Mass and you will love it and your spiritual life will deepen.
By the way, in last year's chat, the Cardinal said the Tridentine Latin Mass was the Church's Mass for only a slice of Her history. That is demonstrably inaccurate, any way you "slice" it.
Back to this year: Asked why only men can become priests, Cardinal Mahony does not answer! Instead he replies, "The moderator has better answers than I do to that question!!!"
