A varied picture

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 13, 2003

Interesting, from the New York Times, is this article portraying the variety of responses of different bishops and dioceses to the call for greater transparency in light of the Dallas meeting last year. It makes sense, I suppose, given that the charter vote was rushed, with only hurried debate, but the bishops clearly have never been on the same page as to what it meant.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    This LA Times article continues a misquoting of Gov. Keating that some bishops, including Okla. City Archibishop Eusebius Beltran, have used against him knowing it was incorrect. Keating never said Catholics should miss Mass. He said that if parents are afraid that their children will be abused by a priest they have a moral obligation to attend Mass elsewhere--even if that means going to another diocese. Beltran and the others were simply looking for a diversion and didn't mind a dishonest one.
