On more serious matters, [Bishop Blase] Cupich was asked about reports that he had moderate leanings.
He response was that he was “no saint.”
“Labels are hard for anyone to live up to. … It’s not my agenda, it’s not what I feel,” he said. “I’m going to try to be attentive to what The Lord wants.”
He pressed for immigration reform, saying it was desperately needed and “every day we delay is a day too long,” he said.
He said he did not think Pope Francis was sending a message to U.S. Catholics with his appointment. “I think his priority is not to send a message but to send a bishop. … I think he sent a pastor, not a message,” Cupich said.
