Naturally, Rock is all over Fr Christopher Coyne’s excellent midwestern adventure. Escape from immaturity is how I thought of his lost assignment at an allegedly “excellent” parish almost five years ago.
SNAP seems to be stirred up about this new assignment, but I’m not sure I see it. They’re not on my bandwagon about the traditional value of bishops being elevated from within a diocese. At least Fr Coyne isn’t a bishop in another diocese.
Fr Coyne was an academic. Since his role as “Meet the Press” he’s been a pastor. By all accounts a good one. Anybody hear anything different?
