Spiderman for Bishop!

Saw Spidey last night. Lotsa fun. Tobey Maguire was born to play him. And (you’ll be relieved to know) it is not rooted in the Paschal Mystery in any discernible way (though it did surprisingly have a sympathetic Aunt May praying the Lord’s Prayer and not being either a hypocrite, a dunce, or a weirdly sexually tormented freak). How refreshing! And I just loved the Green Goblin’s insane cackle. Always bracing when a fictional teenage superhero can voice what several bishops and lotsa clergy don’t seem to have figured out: “With great power comes great responsibility.”
