On Sunday, Bishop George McKinney had two prominent guests for his Sunday service at St. Stephens Cathedral in southeastern San Diego.
In the front row was Mayor Bob Filner, reeling from weeks of scandal and national media frenzy. Kitty corner from him was Council President Todd Gloria, also taking in the St. Stephens experience.
McKinney told me that Filner and Gloria came separately, without any fanfare. Neither spoke to the flock from the pulpit. Afterward, McKinney met with Filner.
He would only tell me that Filner was humble.
