The eye of Sauron has turned to Tyler, Texas.
The Pillar is reporting today that the Vatican might come after Bishop Strickland:
“The situation of Bishop Strickland is the agenda,” one senior official close to the dicastery told The Pillar, “and the expectation is that the Holy Father will be requesting his [Strickland’s] resignation — that will certainly be the recommendation put to him.”
The reasons given are the following:
“There are two aspects,” the official said, “there is the matter of the public scandal from all these comments about the pope and the synod, but there are also real problems in the diocese. Those were the focus of the visitation; there are concerns in the diocese about governance, about financial matters, about basic prudence.”
