Writing from a distance, it would seem that mass resignations would be similar to disbanding the Iraqi army after the fall of Saddam Hussein. There are so many in positions that are required to run the Church (don’t know if the Mayor’s resigning would affect anything). Better to reconcile and transition. How much better for everyone (including us in the USA) if the Bishop saw the light and said something to the effect that he now knows that the faithful were right in this matter (c.f. Newman’s “On Consulting the Faithful”) . How much better if FOSCC and the Bishop came to together to show that the fight was not against the Bishop personally, but against a misguided plan proposed by the Bishop. If the Bishop is the man The-Chris knows, this coming together should be likely, for I am certain (even looking on from Albany NY) that FOSCC would be happy to make peace. The-Chris, am I right about the Bishop?
