Wrong Delegation

From CNS:

Bishop Patrick O’Donoghue of Lancaster said his fellow bishops wrongly delegate their responsibilities to committees of laypeople. He said the agencies and departments of the bishops’ conference were acting independently of the bishops and did not always fully uphold church teaching in their dealings with secular authorities.


Like bishops themselves don’t often act independently or fail to uphold church teaching.

Like some bishops don’t have enough on their plates already. Some struggle with large dioceses and extra responsibilities.

It sounds like this is really about communication, which is, after all, a two-way street.

    Do you think there could be a little problem with obedience mixed in?
