CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Gustavo GarcĂ­a-Siller of San Antonio, Texas, has issued an unusual message urging Catholics not to patronize a local retreat center.

The archbishop said that the Sanctus Ranch, which appeals to Catholics, does not have the approval of the archdiocese, and the two Catholic priests who minister there are not in good standing.

    It doesn't seem that operation of the private retreat center involves any kind of liturgical abuse. More details on the conflict would clarify the situation and give better support for the bishop's decision.
