Quote of the Day (Cardinal Martini, on the Church’s Errors and ‘Journey of Transformation’)

"The Church must admit its mistakes and begin a radical change, starting from the pope and the bishops. The paedophilia scandals oblige us to take a journey of transformation."—Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini (1927-2012), former archbishop of Milan—and unsuccessful papal candidate—quoted in “Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, In Final Interview Before Death, Says Church '200 Years Out Of Date,'” The Huffington Post, September 1, 2012

My thanks to Peter Quinn for the heads-upon this interview.
