"However there are other changes, and the priests, bishops (should) listen to the laity ... I see the role of the bishop as shepherd, and he is to be shepherd of all his people, of both those who agree and those who disagree with them ... The Holy Spirit that dwells in the clergy also dwells in the laity, and we must listen to those who speak inspired by the spirit."
Contrast Serratelli's humility with some of the bloviation that we've seen from other hierarchs of late.

Let't hope the Holy Spirit guides the bishop and the laity in the right direction. All they have to do is pray and let the spirit in to guide them.
He's being very tactful. Remember he has to look at Rodimer for quite a while since he's going to be retired and living about 20 miles away in the diocese.
Rodimer was very reticent when it was time to repudiate the pro-abortion politicians in the diocese and I just hope the new bishop does his job.
