Cream City: On Missed Opportunities

There’s an Urban Milwaukee article about Archbishop Rembert Weakland that’s making the rounds in Wisconsin. Among other details, it offers a look into the expansive apartment/condominium complex Weakland now calls home. Not too exciting. It also offers some insights into Weakland’s daily life. Again, nothing particularly interesting there. Of course, any article about Weakland is going to bring up the scandals, his jaw-dropping fall from grace, and even more recent setbacks. I’m not going there in this piece. After all, how often do we need to rehash thosedepressing events? But one passage in the article struck me, as it looks back on Weakland’s formative years and meteoric rise in the Church.
