Part of every appeal in regard to “All Things New” involves its subjective application of canon law and objective reality, and suspending “some” (but not “all”) tragically confirms the very nature of ALL of the appeals, including those 7 that were suspended. IF Archbishop Rozanski is unwilling to suspend the decrees for ALL such parishes, the evidence of this inconsistent application of canon law (and apparent violation of their own reasoning stated in their press release) could and should be considered further evidence of the arbitrary and capricious nature in which the ATN process has been applied to the faithful flock here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
And even as we work to “suspend” decrees and even seek to have them overturned, we continue to pray for His Excellency Archbishop Rozanski, and all of his leadership team. We pray for truth and transparency, and state once again that a truly public forum for Catholics with appeals or questions, would be the best possible option for understanding, or any healing/unity.
King of France, St. Louis IX, pray for us!!
One response to “Why is the Archdiocese picking “winners and losers” again? Why just 7 “lucky” parishes receiving a suspension of the decrees??”
The parish in Coffman, Mo that has been given a suspension is a very very small parish. Rumor has it that the family that either donated or sold the land for the church to be built on put in a stipulation that if the church was ever closed the property would go back to that family. So we know why that suspension was granted-the archdiocese can’t make money off of that property so why bother closing itLoading…
