Can't be too careful

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jun 10, 2005

My friend, a priest, has been asked by friends to celebrate a wedding in another diocese. But before he can do so, the other diocese requires him to furnish a letter from his own bishop, certifying that he... See if you can guess which one:

  • Assents to all the Roman Catholic Church teaches as revealed by God.
  • Is a priest in good standing with the Roman Catholic Church.
  • Agrees to offer Mass according to the rubrics promulgated by the Roman Catholic Church.
  • or
  • Has gone through a criminal background check.

(Hint: It's only one of the above.)
