Saint John Fisher, pray for your fellow shepherds.

Our former auxiliary bishop died this week, after what the news media called "stepping down for health reasons." He had several massive strokes and by all accounts was completely incapacitated. But that's all anyone ever said: "health reasons." Now I am very wary of those words...

Both the bishop, Joseph Martino, and the auxiliary bishop, John Dougherty, have resigned. Bishop Martino resigned because of incapacitating chronic fatigue and insomnia. No reason was given for Bishop Dougherty's resignation.

Here is a link to the news item: http://www.timesleader.com/news/Martino_officially_announces_resignation_along_with_Dougherty.html

This story seems odd.

Mary Myers

My guess is that the money dried up because the liberal Catholics, who are in the majority, pulled in their purse strings in order to force the good bishop out.
