When are Law and Mahony scheduled to be cleaned?
He retires next year, but the Pope already named his successor last April and he has been installed as auxiliary bishop.
To say this is . . . unusual . . . is an understatement.
Mahony set the seal on his own destruction when he threatened to take his archdiocese into schism if he was interfered with. I don't know how he thought that would help him, but he may have been desperate. In any event, he is gone in all but name.
Law was removed (or his resignation was accepted) back in 2002. He was kicked upstairs to a titular position at Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, where he essentially has no independent authority over anything at all.
Getting rid of long-entrenched, high profile prelates ain't easy, but this pope has taken care of it.
Wow, you manage to insinuate yourself into every thread that mentions Cathicism, don’t you? You should get back on you meds.
