Re: removing bishops
By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | May 05, 2003
Valid examples, Fr. Wilson, but Lefebrve violated canon law and the others presumably acceded to the request to resign their sees. But what about the bishop who does not violate canon law and only shows incompetence or negligence, yet will not step down? I'm thinking of the Dallas case where a coadjutor was assigned, but the ordinary refused to go along and retire when he was supposed to.
