Cardinal Egan certainly deserves to have his say on the events of recent weeks. He doesn’t do many interviews, but he does write a column for Catholic New York, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of New York. In this week’s issue, which reached mailboxes yesterday, he writes very directly about what’s been happening.
I believe that CNY’s circulation is about 140,000 copies, but there are supposed to be some 2.5 million Catholics in the archdiocese (it’s a very, veryÃ‚Â rough estimate, based on the overall size of the population from Census data).
If you don’t get CNY, youÃ‚Â can read Egan’s column on the “website.”:http://www.cny.org/archive/eg/eg102606.htm
