Cordileone Arrested


Archbishop-Elect  Salvatore Cordileone was arrested for DUI.  He was jailed for 2 hours and then released on $2,500 bail.  Cordileone was stopped at a sobriety checkpoint and was found to have alcohol levels above what California law permits.  He was ordered to appear in court October 9.  After his arrest, he asked for forgiveness and offered his apology for bringing disgrace upon the Church.

The news is disturbing indeed.  Cordileone was chosen by Pope Benedict XVI to clean up the Archdiocese of San Francisco.  With this arrest, many will come out and attack his moral authority, especially those in the LGBT who despise him greatly for opposing so-called "gay marriage."

We all make mistakes, but Cordileone should have known better.  Prudence is a Cardinal Virtue that brings our minds and hearts to focus on God and right reason.  It brings us to do the right thing.  Unfortunately, Cordileone was not using this virtue.

I pray all goes well and that the people will forgive his mistake.  I pray that he will be more careful next time and use temperance when having a drink.
