bronzed and fit
A Wisconsin lawmaker had the effrontery to question Archbishop Jerome Listecki as to how the Milwaukee archdiocese regards its disgraced former Archbishop Rembert Weakland.
Grothman asked Listecki about Weakland’s current status. “Does he have any position of honor still in the church? Is he still over anybody or have any authority at all?” Listecki said no, that Weakland is “totally retired.”

Archbishop Weakland is a Benedictine monk. Why hasn't he returned to a life of prayer and penance in a monastery?

Why wasn't this man put to the same lifelong penance that Fr. Maciel went into? Wasn't the disgrace and effrontery of the same magnitude?
