In Birdland, the Tradition Continues WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - January 19, 2017 ... of two new auxiliaries: Bishops Adam Parker, 45, and Mark Brennan, 68. The dual appointments awaited for over two years, each of the Pope's picks brings a new element to the life of this storied local church: until now the pastor of one of suburban Washington's largest and most diverse parishes, Brennan crosses the "Hindenburg line" as the first prelate to be named for a newly emergent Hispanic community here... while Parker – the ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2017/01/in-birdland-tradition-continues.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. The diocesan structure of the Irish Catholic Church was established in 1111 at the Synod of Rathbreasail which moved the Irish church from a monastic to a diocesan-based model. 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 Cleveland, LeBishop Calls It a Day WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - December 28, 2016 ... retirement of Bishop Richard Lennon of Cleveland three months before the latter's 70th birthday. While the Boston-born prelate suffered a significant heart attack earlier this year – and has reportedly begun to struggle with "memory issues" – the move brings a rapid end to an extraordinarily fraught tenure marked by significant upheaval in the 700,000-member diocese, Ohio's largest local church (and once again a City of Champions). In tandem with the move, as no ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2016/12/in-cleveland-lebishop-calls-it-day.html

It is common knowledge that there are no free and fair elections in China, everything is prepared behind the scenes so that the assembly vote is reduced to being a mere formality and its conclusion foregone. Possible candidates for president of the Council of Bishops include Msgr. Joseph Shen Bin, 46, bishop of Haimen (Jiangsu), or Msgr. John Baptist Yang Xiaoting, 52 , ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/12/assembly-of-chinese-catholic.html

Habemus +Adam – With Pope's Birdland Picks, Alegria Para Todos WHISPERS IN THE LOGGIA - December 5, 2016 ... 550,000-member Baltimore fold, which until now has never required the specific provision of a Spanish-speaking prelate. (The appointees – Brennan, left and Parker at right – are seen flanking Lori ahead of this morning's announcement in the Gibbons Room of 408 N. Charles.) The dual ordination is scheduled for Thursday, 19 January, in the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. Given the sizable followings both the Pope's picks have come to garner, though, it simply bears asking: is there any ...http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/2016/12/habemus-adam-with-birdland-aux-picks.html

And he had his picture taken with a Chinese bishop in St. Peter's Square last month. Now, he appears to be considering more significant action: a grand compromise with China's Communist leaders to heal the bitter, decades-old rift that has divided generations of Chinese Catholics and prevented the pope from openly exercising authority in the world's most populous country. The Vatican says talks are continuing, and much work remains ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/11/talks-to-heal-catholic-rift-in-china.html

Pigs Know Where to Rub Their Skin. BAHAMA CATHOLIC GUY - November 21, 2016 ... members. As the Backstreet Boys sang in 1999, "I want it that way," in essence, their way. It saddens my heart that from the time the newly elected priest "Fr Calixte" was appointed to St Thomas More, there have been numerous complaints to the Archdiocese, along with a signed petition that was taken around requesting members to stand with them (the bosses) to affect the roles of Fr. Calixte and Fr. Russell. Let me say that as a career pilot of 27 years I am proud to say that I have never been ...http://www.bahamacatholic.com/2016/11/pigs-know-where-to-rub-their-skin.html

Desecration & Sacriliege in the Service of the Truth? Never Καθολικός διάκονος - November 7, 2016 ... beginning to re-think abortion. In other words, when it comes to abortion, the pro-life position is making steady progress. Stunts like the one Fr Pavone pulled only serve to undermine and counteract these efforts. I seriously doubt Fr Pavone has a following beyond those committed to ending abortion. So, at the practical level, setting aside the moral reprehensibility of his action, it is doubtful his using the naked body of a child murdered by abortion in such a brazenly political manner ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/11/desecration-sacriliege-in-service-of.html

This is what happened on the inauguration of Bishop Zhu Weifang in Wenzhou. Father Sun Zhenhua snatched the letter of appointment from the delegates of Bishops Conference of Catholic Church in China and Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association since the letter of appointment should have been read by a delegate from the Holy See. Therefore, there are still many variables before Fr. Ding Lingbin can be ordained as a ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/11/episcopal-appointments-popes-big-gift.html

Pope Francis and the New Cardinals CLERICAL WHISPERS - October 19, 2016 Based on his numerous personnel appointments, it is clear what type of Church leadership Pope Francis prefers. American Catholics have learned this through the election of Blaise Cupich as Archbishop of Chicago and his imminent elevation to the College of Cardinals (meanwhile, orthodox prelates such as Chaput in Philadelphia and Gomez in Los Angeles have been snubbed). However, the recent election of the new leadership of the European bishops shows that ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/10/pope-francis-and-new-cardinals.html
