I am dipping my toe in social media. It appears that Cardinal Joseph Tobin is being seriously considered as the next Archbishop of Washington. I am petitioning the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, who works closely with the Vatican on appointments, not to support the appointment of Cardinal Tobin for the reasons given in the petition explanation. Please help! Sign the petition and send it on to your Facebook and Twitter and anything else contacts. We can stop this! More than 20,000 people signed the petition for Cdl. Wuerl to resign, so people are watching. We just need to get the message out.
Even if you are not a resident of the Archdiocese of Washington, even if you are not a resident of the United States, this matters to you. The Cardinal Archbishop of Washington is necessarily a leading prelate in the nation and in the whole Church. His voice will be heard and it can make a difference in the issues of faith and morals that are facing our Church today. We need a strong advocate of the Faith in this crucial position.
Those wishing to sign this petition may do so HERE.
Tobin and Francis, BFF...
