I see this headline “Cardinal Mahony bars Australian bishop with doctrinal …” only to find that the Catholic News Agency site is down.
This obviously refers to Bishop Geoffrey Robinson who was an auxiliary bishop of the Sydney for twenty years. The Australian Catholic Bishop’s conference recently issued a public warning about the doctrinal difficulties in his book. I only hope that this is a trend for Cardinal Mahony to ban dissident speakers. The Cardinal wrote after the Pope’s visit.
I return to Los Angeles a different disciple of Jesus than when I left a week ago. Thank you, Lord, for sending us not only the Vicar of Christ and the Successor of Peter, but also a brother and friend who knows Jesus personally and gave us six extraordinary days of grace and hope!
May my pessimism be drowned in Christian charity.
Update: Unfortunately Bishop Robinson did speak in Washington D.C. last night to Voice of the the “Faithful” an event advertised in a parish bulletin. It would be nice to have a statement by Archbishop Wuerl about this.
