I have for some time now been making noises that our South African Catholic newspaper should do more about giving its readers access to the homilies and messages of our bishops. Not all of us are fortunate enough to attend Mass with them and to hear their message for ourselves.
The good news is that I see that Cardinal Napier is now going to be contributing to The Southern Cross on a monthly basis. I am absolutely ecstatic about this news. I hope that Cardinal Napier’s example will lead more of our bishops to reach out to us through the newspaper and share their message with us. We need their guidance and their encouragement more than they themselves may sometimes realise.
Thank you Cardinal Napier and thank you The Southern Cross!
