IF WE CAN TRUST HIM IN THIS...WE CAN TRUST HIM MOVING FORWARD

FROM THE PNC STORY:

"I think this is a great act of courage, as I  said, I believe Byrnes to be the only bishop in world that has actually addressed this head on. Other bishops have declared moratoriums on the neo, but nobody that I know has actually addressed the 'illicit' Eucharistic practice," added Rohr. "He has not only every right to do this but he actually, as a bishop, has a responsibility to do it. It’s the bishop who’s supposed to sort of police the liturgy in his diocese and every bishop has that responsibility. If we can trust Archbishop Byrnes to do the right thing in this, I believe we can trust him moving forward."

  1. Don't canonize Byrnes yet.

    Most of the world's Catholic bishops don't have to deal with any of this because The GIRM is routinely enforced and routinely accepted in their dioceses. Who doesn't like it is free to leave. It's as simple as that.

  2. As Tim, myself and several others have argued after the rector of the Cathedral had released his instruction.
    In order for the Archdiocese not to have 2 different speeds, with some parishes enforcing the GIRM and other being held hostage by presbyters doing whatever they wanted to do; the Archbishop would have to intervene and clarify the situation for all parishioners and priests.
    This is exactly what Archbishop Byrnes has done this week.
    He has taken everyone to task and made things a lot clearer, with some monitoring down the road to help him.
    We should be please to have someone who finally takes his job seriously after 30 years plus of being abandoned.

    We should remain determined and steadfast, but it is refreshing to see some light at the end of this tunnel.

  4. Oops! Why are the NEOS having secret meetings? Oh ya, they are planning to go to Rome in April, Catechist, Presbyters and all. Hmm, wonder why?
