The Philadelphia story continues ...

Philadelphia Is the Ireland of America

(http://www.patheos.com/Resources/Additional-Resources/Philadelphia-is-the-Ireland-of-America-Marci-Hamilton-3-18-2011-.html?sms_ss=blogger&at_xt=4d877302cb6a2121%2C0)


This story virtually wrote itself as posts with comments from the USA appeared on the blog.  We have also inserted a link to patheos.com, which may be useful in looking at some theology issues, if you're that way inclined.  On the other hand, you may be interested to know that we will be returning to some fascinating facts and leave this page to speak for itself.

Below is a list of links that readers have kindly sent us.  We have included them as part of this post for ease of access.

  8. On a lighter note:

    Sexual abuse lawsuit: In the March 22 Section A, a brief news item about a civil lawsuit alleging sexual abuse by a priest in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia misspelled the name of a parish cited by the man who filed the suit. The man, a former altar boy, said he was abused at Our Lady of Calvary, not Cavalry, parish from 1988 to 1991.
