Dear Mrs. Don-o,

The right is not hyperventilating to note that three prelates who insist on orthodoxy in action as well as words were removed from the Congregation for Bishops while Wuerl was added.

My parish is in the Archdiocese of Washington. Having seen him up close and personal, I can tell you, he talks a good game, but many of his actions (and failures to act) undermine orthodoxy in the Church.

He makes Cardinal McCarrick look like a saint.

I’m actually not hyperventilating at all. I’m very calm because none of this surprises me. Those who are hyperventilating are just beginning to wake up and it scares them.

And it should.

I agree on Burke vs Wuerl --- bad, bad choice for the Congregation for Bishops. However, ABC had it just plain wrong when they said Burke was removed from the Apostolic Signatura --- and that's his day job, the big one, and he's still in it, big time.

I weary quickly of curial politics, especially the paranoid style of inferring always the worst intentions, of everybody, all the time. This is Romanità at its most devil-pleasing.

For all we know, Burke asked to have some of his bureaucratic gabbing-coffee-and-consensus jobs trimmed, so he can spend more quality time doing top-level Canon Law at the Signatura. We don't know any different, do we ?

This constant crunching and spitting out sunflower seeds, which passes for Vatican 'analysis," is just histamine-itchy clericalism. I say to hell with it.
