St. Louis, Jun 8, 2008 / 03:06 pm (CNA).- An excommunicated board member of a breakaway St. Louis Catholic parish has reconciled with the Church after meeting privately with the Archbishop of St. Louis, Raymond L. Burke. Archbishop Burke has said he is “profoundly happy” about the man’s reconciliation.
Edward Florek was excommunicated in December 2005 for his membership on the St. Stanislaus Kostka Corporation board of directors, which opposed Archbishop Burke’s parish restructuring plan and brought in a renegade priest to staff St. Stanislaus Kostka Church.
Thanks be to God. This is great news!
It sure is great news. And it shows how excommunication can be an extraordinary measure in not just correcting dissidents, but in bringing them back to the fold.
The angels are singing His praises!
Thanks be to God, indeed!
