In discovering that my last entry was incorrect, I sent the following e-mail to Bishop Callahan. I am choosing to leave my prior post up as a reminder to myself and others that I can make huge mistakes. This will be of no surprise to some of you.
Dear Bishop Callahan,
Perhaps you have heard about my egregious blog entry concerning you and extraordinary communion ministers for confirmation services (http://faithfulmilwaukeecatholic.blogspot.com/2008/03/bishop-callahan-turning-back-clock-at.html). I must sincerely apologize to you for this post on my blog. After talking to someone this past weekend, I thought that what I posted on my blog was correct, but I have discovered this was definitely not the case.
Dean Daniels, with Christian charity, pointed this out to me. I then revisited the person I had conversed with and discovered there had been a miscommunication, which is most definitely my fault. For even if this person misspoke, I should be much more careful before putting such an entry on my blog. So once again, I am very sorry.
I do not expect a reply from you, but hope that you can find it in your heart to not think ill of me.
In true embarrassment,
A Faithful Catholic
P.S. I refer to myself as a faithful catholic, but after this incident I feel much less faithful.
