See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

The Bishop Wore Print...


So South Beach.
.
Miami Archbishop John Favalora announced an early retirement on April 20, only eight months before he was set to reach the normal episcopal retirement age of 75. Despite the fact that the Vatican usually only accepts early resignations for serious illness or another “grave cause,” the official explanation given by Archbishop Favalora himself says he is in “good health,” and presents no other “grave reason” for the unexpected retirement.
.
Meanwhile, a group of lay Catholics in the archdiocese has revealed communications that they have had with the Vatican regarding an alleged gay cabal of priests that the group claims is veritably running the archdiocese, and suggests that this situation is the real cause of the early retirement. The group says that the Vatican has investigated its claims, and found them to be well-founded. - Source

I don't doubt the story.

  3. Isn't this one of those things where you put in your retirement paperwork say 6 months in advance so they can start searching for a replacement??

    It would be rather a shock to put in request for retirement once day and pack up all your stuff and move out the next day...

  5. The Miami archdiocese is notorious...anyone who's been down there, knows. The clean-up has been a long time coming. God is good. Praise Him! Alleluiah!
