Archbishop Chaput to Philadephia

Pope Benedict has accepted the retirement of Cardinal Rigali of Philadelphia and has named Archbishop Charles Chaput to succeed him.
We used some of Archbishop Chaput’s writings and quotes in class.  Prior to Philadelphia, Archbishop Chaput served as the Archbishop of Denver; he is the author of the book “Render unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life”
