Creative Minority Report: Bp. Morlino: Apologizes, Retracts Line About SSPX

Creative Minority Report: Bp. Morlino: Apologizes, Retracts Line About SSPX



When Good Bishop Morlino of the Diocese of Madison issued a letter to
his Diocese a month ago about the SSPX, there was one line in the letter
that jumped out and become the headline for many bloggers and Catholic
media outlets that take a very hard line on the SSPX. That line urged
the faithful to have "nothing to do with them."



Friday night, on The World Over with Raymond Arroyo, Bishop Morlino was
asked about that letter. Being the good man that he is, he was
transparent and said that someone drafted the letter for him and in his
editing process he asked the line to be removed. Unfortunately, the
line remained in against his wishes. Something the Good Bishop takes
responsibility for. He apologized for its inclusion and said he has
"never felt that way about another priestly society" and he reiterated
his position that the SSPX are "many fine people trying to act in good
faith" but that the jurisdictional matters are concerning. He said he
is "happy about" the fact that the priests of the SSPX have been granted
some equivalent jurisdiction during the year of mercy to hear
confession. He also said it is "my hope there can be a reconciliation."
