The combination of Maloney's cranky, repetitive whining and the cartoon (with the Pope saying "I miss Krakow") that was placed with her article really strains one's practice of charity. When will it be learned that there are no such persons as "American" Catholics nor is there a "U.S." Catholic Church. There are Catholics who struggle to imitate the Christ within his church and there are those who struggle mightily to subvert the magisterium for their own ego-bloated, strident concerns.
Given Maloney's feminism and the amateurism of the cartoonist, it certainly can't be doubted that the Pope yearns for Krakow--and not just occasionally.
