Step back for a couple of weeks, Father Pfleger: Cardinal George

"...I have asked Father Michael Pfleger, Pastor of St. Sabina’s Parish, to step back from his obligations there and take leave for a couple of weeks from his pastoral duties, effective today. Fr. Pfleger does not believe this to be the right step at this time. While respecting his disagreement, I have nevertheless asked him to use this opportunity to reflect on his recent statements and actions in the light of the Church’s regulations for all Catholic priests."

Please join Cardinal George and the parishioners of Saint Sabrina's prayer for Father Pfleger.
