    Nice article. Fr. Rutler appears to be speaking from God. The idea of saints in the modern age according to Teilhard de Chardin is that saints have been stereotypes representing a racist and sexist culture. As Adrian Monk has stated, I may be wrong but I don’t think so. On October 21, Keteri Tekawitha will be canonized as the first American saint born on these shores as the “Lily of the Mohawk”.

    I wish I still lived in Boston to attend this talk. i am surprised that the archdiocese allows someone as orthodox as Fr. Rutler to speak in Boston.
