“Pope fires Slovak bishop in rare show of authority
Published July 03, 2012
VATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI fired a 52-year-old Slovak bishop for apparently mismanaging his diocese in a rare show of papal power over bishops that could have implications for U.S. sex abuse cases.

Maybe a subscription to Nat. Geo. would be enough. Somehow those Bishops Benedict wants to remove he finds a way. Why not a self confessed molester and predicate crook? If it's not important enough then what is more important?
A wolf is feeding on the sheep and no one can find the authority to show him to the door.

(You don't have to be brilliant, not being stupid is enough.)
Good catch about the Slovak bishop. It's good to know --- but (as I understand it) Garcia is not a bishop. But still..
If it's possible --- if Benedict has his crozier raised over Garcia's guilty head --- I do hope he brings it down hard.
