Cardinal Blase Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, attends a closing Mass during ‘The Protection of Minors in the Church’ meeting at the Regia Hall on Feb. 24, 2019, in Vatican City. Last month, he tweeted his criticism of a Jan. 20 USCCB statement.

While the tweets criticizing the USCCB’s Inauguration Day statement confirmed his preference for finding common ground with Catholic politicians like Joe Biden, they also revealed a willingness to openly confront his brother bishops.
