I don’t care which bishop either Kennedy is subject to....do the tenets of the Catholic faith vary from state to state or city to city?
I am frankly apalled that some other man thinks he has control of my faith. Not what the Bible teaches.
A Bishop or Archbishop is the authority of the Church as the successor to the Apostles of Jesus Christ for a specific geographic area or diocese.
A Bishop has the authority to control the practice of Catholic Faith within that geographic area and can deny Communion, one of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church and could excommunicate a Catholic from the Church.
Why some Bishops do not exercise such authority is above my pay level.
