Phoenix Diocese Making a Comeback
A reader, Hacken, writes in from Phoenix:
"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for posting truth . . . I understand truth...and as a Catholic I love to see it bravely spoken.
I am in the Diocese of Phoenix...one of the most liberal and troubled Diocese in America, and recently we've experienced a slight return to Orthodoxy with a new Bishop who came on board after our prior Bishop being charged, and later convicted, with leaving the scene of a fatal accident. It has been as stange path we have followed here...going from public shame to a private movement back to unification with the Magisterium."
I wrote on Bishop Olmsted a while ago, who made quite an impression on me when he came in. Incidentally, he made the newspapers again today, in a rare demonstration of episcopal spine, by suspending from ministry a priest who refused to recant from his signing of a gay activist declaration (after repeated warnings, mind you). Thanks to Polish Prince for the link, and let's all say a prayer for the good Catholics in Phoenix.
