Our Fabulous Florida Bishops, Snapshot #7

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 10, 2003

We mustn't give the impression that a bishop's day is all play. Serious attention to the faith is part of the job. Back in June of 2000 Bishop Robert "Isn't David an Adonis?" Lynch ended the practice of Perpetual Adoration of the Eucharist in his diocese, arguing that it diminished the role of the gathered community.

For parishes that wish to inaugurate adoration of the Blessed Sacrament the Bishop says they should "reflect on... their commitment of time and money to social services." Among other reflections, they should ask, "Are they as respectful and reverent toward Christ's presence in the gathered Body, the Church, as they are to the presence of Christ in the Sacrament? .... Does the eucharistic bread look like bread? ... Do the eucharistic ministers reflect the parish, i.e., inclusive of age, ethnicity, and gender?"

We love our bishops.
