Oh, Austen. As I always tell my kids, we are all "important" as children of God. Is this what dialogue looks like? Demonizing and dismissing those we disagree with? This doesn't seem like the synodal, listening spirit the Pope is encouraging. twitter.com/austeni/status/119 …

So why air tedious administrative discussions that are lost on the audience and lack all evangelical power? The once made the line item budgets available to the bishops and would debate them in public. That transparency ended when I broadcast those line items years ago.2/2

The bishops have told me themselves that the cameras stifle real debate and their honest opinions. They don't want to be seen as disagreeing with brother bishops. All the interesting stuff is discussed in executive session anyway... 1/2

Born in Mexico and ordained a priest in Spain, Archbishop Gomez is the first Latino to lead the conference. He is also the first immigrant to head the conference.

The Catholic Bishops' Conference is the only thing on TV that can make CSPAN feel like the Superbowl. As I have said for years, they should consider permanent closed sessions.

Wow. Official just told the Catholic bishops the @USCCB's "Migration Refugee Services continues to downward adjust their budget" to reflect fewer refugees let in by Trump admin.

He gave data:

2016: 24,000 refugees resettled by MRS

2017: 7,800

2018: 4,700

2019: 4,350

Notable line in Nuncio’s bomb-drop on bishops’ communion with Francis: “…families continue to demand of dioceses and parishes the accompaniment envisioned by Amoris Laetitia.”

This is a “woodshed” moment – unusually visceral for +Pierre, signaling a loss of patience. twitter.com/roccopalmo/status/ …

"The pope is not a revolutionary, elected to change the church’s teaching.” Cardinal Burke tells @DouthatNYT. "If Francis seems to be tacitly encouraging changes...it means 'there’s a breakdown of the central teaching authority of the Roman pontiff.'" nyti.ms/34GZ3SQ
