Diogenes connects the dots for us in Cleveland regarding Bishop Anthony Pilla’s abrupt resignation earlier this year, the quick appointment of a new ordinary, and recent financial misconduct indictments. Nothing is proven, but it all fits. It also proves another all-too-depressing aphorism:
Not for the first time, we’re left to observe that when a bishop mishandles the financial affairs of his diocese, the Vatican takes action promptly. If only Rome would act as quickly when a bishop’s misdeeds involve spiritual affairs!
