"Fr. Daniel Mindling, OFM, Cap., will serve as the new consulting theologian for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. The move comes in response to a review of the campaign, whose choices of grantees have been criticized.
The priest is an academic dean and professor of moral theology at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He is presently a consultant to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities and the Task Force on Catholic Health Care."

This is a welcome development, as long as his appointment is meant to change the direction of the Campaign and not just window dressing to curry the favor of the parishioners.
I don't know anything about Father Mindling but I did find an interesting interview with him at The Pew Forum. At the very least he's an articulate defender of the Church's position on abortion.
I hope and pray that Father Mindling can have some affect on the CCHD and its proclivity towards Progressivism. He is currently a consultant to the USCCB on pro-life issues so he isn't, most likely, part of the inner circle.
God speed, Father!
