For Wyoming, a Border Bishop – In "Rapid" Move, Cheyenne Nabs Its Neighbor WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - March 16, 2017 ( Updated with press conference video. ) W hen one senior American prelate recently termed the new Nuncio to Washington "a real Speedy Gonzalez" on the appointments front, he wasn't kidding – even if Archbishop Christophe Pierre's prior assignment ostensibly went forgotten in the moment. As fresh proof of a striking acceleration on the Stateside files since Pierre's Border-crossing last summer, Roman Noon this Thursday brings quite the "speedy" ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2017/03/in-rapid-move-cheyenne-nabs-its-neighbor.html

Church problems The Association of Catholic Priests (ACP) said it was "reluctant to call for Archbishop Brown's removal" but felt it "instructive that his appointment was a central part of Rome's response to the problems of the Irish Church".

Vatican Keeps a Tight Grip on the Bishoprics CLERICAL WHISPERS - March 8, 2017 ... remained decisive. The appointment of bishops remained the principal means of control over the local churches." From the time in the early 1980s that John Paul II rolled out his "restoration" blueprint, the system of appointing safe but often mediocre candidates — men who were content to be managers rather than leaders — became one of its defining characteristics. And Ireland was no exception. The policy was continued by Pope Benedict XVI and, surprisingly, has not significantly ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/03/vatican-keeps-tight-grip-on-bishoprics.html

The last two Popes made lots of misjudgments in their appointments, I am sure, so it should come as no surprise that this Pope may also do so. Like Charles II , the Pope can always attribute his mistakes to those who advise him. And here, of course, the council of cardinals has its role to play in advising the Pope and letting him know the mind of the faithful. The Church is not a democracy, but it is a family, and in every happy family all voices ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/the-popes-council-have-given-him-their.html

Italian Prelate Who Supposedly Wanted Pope Francis Dead Resigns CLERICAL WHISPERS - February 19, 2017 ... Negri's pedigree, however, many Italians found the sentiments expressed in the report at least plausible. Negri was once the right-hand man of Don Luigi Giussani, the founder of Communion and Liberation, which was launched in Milan in the early 20th century and at one time seen as sort of rival camp to the progressive leadership of the late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini. (When news of Negri's alleged comments first broke, the movement issued a statement indicating he hadn't held any ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/italian-prelate-who-supposedly-wanted.html

Downsizing of Catholic Dioceses Could Bring Benefits - UPDATED FROM 2010 CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 14, 2017 ... Currently neither Galway, Ossory or Clogher dioceses have a bishop, following the recent resignations of Bishops Drennan, Freeman and McDaid respectively.

This was developed further at the Synod of Kells in 1152. Dioceses were, in the main, modelled on political realities of the day. In his book The End ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/01/downsizing-of-catholic-dioceses-could.html

In China, No Easy Solution for Right to Choose Catholic Leadership CLERICAL WHISPERS - January 9, 2017 With the bishop of Wenzhou near death in early September, Chinese authorities told Father Lu Xiaozhou it was time for a trip. They took the priest more than 300 kilometres away and kept him under constant surveillance. Two men stayed with him at night and, if he wanted to go for a walk during the day, remained at his side. Their job was to make sure he and three other local church leaders remained far from home when the bishop, Zhu Weifang, died. One of ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/01/in-china-no-easy-solution-for-right-to.html

In tandem with the move, as no ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2016/12/in-cleveland-lebishop-calls-it-day.html
