More on excommunicated bishops


Pope Benedict XVI at Auschwitz concentration camp,May 28, 2006

A recent post on the pope's lifting the excommunication of four illicitly ordained bishops has had some interesting response. One reader (Aodh Óg Ó Domhnaill) in the combox at that post shed some helpful light on what this means canonically - and what it doesn't mean.

An even fuller explanation of that, in fairly accessible language, can be found here.OHCARCC

Reading news reports from all over the world, everyone is outraged. Jewish people are hurt and offended. Time will tell how the pope will fix this mess. I'm very disappointed that the Vatican is so silent.
