CWN Editor's Note: In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield (IL) commented on Cardinal Robert McElroy’s latest essay.

“I think it’s very convenient to try to hide behind Pope Francis and say, ‘Well, if you disagree with me, you’re really disagreeing with Pope Francis,’” said Bishop Paprocki. “But I think the reality is contrary to that.”

    May God bless and protect Bishop Thomas Paprocki! The pope should not keep silent at this point, unless... perish the thought... it's really Francis who is hiding behind McElroy.
