The nature of episcopal leadership

The nature of episcopal leadership

Diogenes says there’s a distinction to be made between the leadership to which we refer when speak of a bishop’s office and the leadership of a bishop over and above his office, but inherent in his person. Now the former inheres in the office according to Catholic ecclesiology, but is the latter desirable in an of itself?, he asks.

An interesting question with interesting examples provided.
