I wonder if this is the prelude to excommunication?

I know they have to notify the offender in writing of the offense and give them a chance to repent.
But this guy seems intent on flipping the Church the Bird.

Ofcourse we will never know if he is excommunicated.

Hence my question as to whether or not this falls under Canon 915.

The rule of thumb is that the bishop is responsible to initially meet with the individual in private and address the issue. Apparently, this has taken place. We will have to wait to see how the bishop now handles the situation.
