Angered, the parishioner — a layman who as a Eucharistic minister, helps administer Holy Communion — said he recently confronted Tanzini, telling him, “Your heart is not into the parish, your heart is in this ‘neocat’ way. It’s just destroying the church.”
The transition our parish is facing at this time may cause uneasy feelings in some of you. I believe that we should look at the events that all that is happening now – as well as others that took place in the past months – with eyes of faith, open heart and clear mind. Most of the “suspicions” and “worries” that many are affected by are the result of hasty assumptions, misinterpretations and lack of information. I hope that this time of transition may provide the opportunity for sound and honest conversation, keeping in mind that the Lord has the power to dispel all fears and resolve any conflict or division that may arise.
