@Ultraviolet: your prediction is supported by the Vatican (not surprisingly)
Hate to back Cd Ladaria, but he is completely right about the local Bishop’s authority. Only a couple of very specific things are named by Rome as being granted to the USCCB’s authority. Everything else is either reserved to Rome or under the local ordinary. Wish the bishops would act on this and essentially disband the USCCB along with all of its funding and “charities”.
Agreed. We don’t want bishops conferences to have more power. I wonder whether Cardinal Ladaria would have intervened if the bishops were debating a general policy of toleration for sacrilegious communion. I don’t know the answer, but today’s Vatican gives me every indication that they back any policy that is in line with globalist objectives.
