Cardinal Bergoglio Hits \"Neo-clericalism\"

Vatican Insider has the story of the Archbishop of Buenos Aires' efforts to instruct his own clergy on why they are wrong to deny baptism to children out of wedlock. Next month, we start the Year of Faith. We are all focused on the New Evangelization. Kudos to Cardinal Bergoglio for recognizing that some of the evangelization needs to take place with the clergy!
