“I should not like to be too harsh on this commission’s labors. It numbered a certain number of genuine scholars and more than one experienced and judicious pastor. Under different circumstances, they might have accomplished excellent work. Unfortunately, on the one hand, a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee in the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Larcaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Annibale, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”

Clearest Explanation Ever! —Bishop Gracida On Divorce & Remarriage For Catholics
published 24 June 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

ECAUSE I HAD GOOD PARENTS, I’ve understood our Catholic Faith since I was a child. However, when it comes to explaining the Faith, I often struggle. Bishop René H. Gracida demonstrates how to explain clearly a subject which confuses many Catholics:

Bishop Gracida spoke to Mother Angelica for 60 minutes about the Church teaching on Divorce & Remarriage. You can obtain a copy of this DVD from EWTN.

Deep down, most of us feel that we’re eminently articulate. However, when we see ourselves on camera we are quickly cured of this notion! Bishop Gracida comes across very well on that video. Maybe somewhere along the line during his interesting life he was given some television tips!
