a good reminder

A good reminder that we are part of a GLOBAL church, from John Allen at NCR:
"When I lecture, I'm fond of reminding American audiences that we represent just six percent of the global Catholic population - 67 million out of 1.1 billion," said Allen. "Out of both theological and sociological necessity, the future of American Catholicism is tied up with 94 percent of the Catholics in the world who live outside the United States.

Yep, I've often thought the same thing. We're 6% of the population, and we act as though we are a much larger, more important majority.

Hope your trip to NJ goes well!
