Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was officially seated today in an 11 a. m. liturgy at Washington National Cathedral. Episcopal News Service has the story. The full text of her sermon is here.
“Saints are those who are vulnerable to the gut-wrenching pain of this world. Some of us have to be seized by the throat or thrown into the tomb before we can begin to find that depth of compassion. And perhaps unless we are, we won’t leave our comfortable narrow lives – or our remarkably nasty ones – to wake up and begin to answer that pain.”
