episcopal management quiz

By Diogenes (articles - email) | May 23, 2005

What do you-- I mean, what do you do-- when an auxiliary bishop encourages kids to picket the archbishop's residence?

  • You notice that he's over the age of 75, and accept his resignation. You say he hasn't submitted his resignation? That's OK; accept it anyway.
  • You recall how in 1995, after he had wandered off the reservation, the French Bishop Jacques Gaillot was "transferred" from the diocese of Evreux to the titular diocese of Parthenia. It's difficult for a bishop to do much damage in Parthenia, since there are no people in the diocese. Maybe Bishop Gaillot needs an auxiliary?
  • You figure that encouraging kids to picket the archbishop's residence isn't as bad as encouraging kids to accept unnatural acts as normal, or to reject Church teachings regarding ordination, so actually this wasn't such a bad day after all.
