The following is in response to an anonymous poster, whose full comment can be found here. I am responding to the last paragraph of his/her comment, which are in red.
Isn't it time for you to let go and see that Archbishop Byrnes is trying to restore that link?
How? By criticizing and judging a brother Bishop? Is that how unity is supposed to be restored? Since when has judgments ever restored unity? Father Pius, Father Adrian, Father Edivaldo, Monsignor David, and the entire NCW including its founder were called "liars." Did that restore unity? The seminary was accused of money laundering. Did that restore unity? So, explain how a Bishop who publicly goes on air to criticize a brother Bishop as being a "disaster" without hearing his side of the story supposed to restore unity?
You came to my blog and tell me that I should let go; yet, you do not even go to the jungle blog and tell them to let go. Now, why is that? May I remind you that it was the jungle blog who has been having a field day with the word "Disaster" ever since July 6th right after the press conference of Archbishop Byrnes. My post, on the other hand, was not posted until July 7th, the DAY AFTER THE PRESS CONFERENCE. So, why come to my blog and tell me to let go, but do not go to the jungle and tell them the same thing?
You publicly pointing out Archbishop Byrnes' fault does nothing to help the situation. You did exactly what those 2 priests did a few years ago. Instead of taking your problem to the bishop yourself, you went straight to the public sphere with this blog post.
On the contrary, I did take the problem to Archbishop Byrnes FIRST. Before I posted on my blog, I emailed Archbishop Byrnes and corrected him, which I hope he will take into consideration. My post was ALSO a correction. It is a message of correction, telling everyone that judgments does not bring reparation. It does not bring reconciliation. That was the main message in my post. Now explain to me, what message do you think Rohr was sending out when he wrote the following in his comments:
