The Good News about Our Bishops

For those who may be lamenting the seeming resurgence of the Catholic Left in the Age of Obama, I would like to point out some good news: This year’s spate of bishops’ assignments have been quite heartening. Since the beginning of 2009, there have been ten appointments announced by the Vatican. All of them should be encouraging to those who grumble about the “bishops this” and the “bishops that.”
Just as encouraging should be the record number of bishops who were outspoken during the presidential campaign in defense of unborn life, and those who publicly criticized Notre Dame for honoring President Barack Obama.
Of course, this new spirit of activism among the bishops is not good news to everybody. David O’Brien of Holy Cross tried to spin a theory about why many other bishops remained silent during the Notre Dame flap: “Their most recent engagements with politics sharpened divisions within the Church and left the bishops shaken, even embarrassed.” O’Brien hoped that the bishops’ conference, meeting in San Antonio last week, would put away their “shrill tone,” “make a new start,” and “build on hope, not fear.”
Dan Gilgoff, at his very fine “God & Country” blog at U. S. News & World Report, was prompted by O’Brien’s article to ask whether one could in fact claim that a “silent majority” of the bishops support Obama. Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, responded to Gilgoff’s question by saying, “The real story here is not that most [bishops] said nothing, it’s about the 80 or so who spoke out. In my 16 years in this job, I have never seen that many bishops go public about an issue like this.”
I agree with Donohue completely. The same thing could be said for the record number of bishops who spoke out during the 2008 presidential campaign on subjects ranging from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then-Sen. Joe Biden on St. Augustine and “Faithful Citizenship,” to the question of whether a Catholic can vote for a pro-abortion candidate in good conscience. As Donohue added, “We have more bishops willing to speak out now on matters that conservative Catholics want them to address than we’ve seen in a very, very long time.”
As it turned out, the bishops’ meeting in San Antonio did not go as O’Brien had hoped. The bishops did not ignore the Notre Dame scandal — they took the opportunity to show their corporate support of Bishop John D’Arcy of Fort Wayne-South Bend, who refused to attend the Notre Dame commencement for the first time in his 24 years as bishop. His fellow bishops wrote:
The bishops of the United States express our appreciation and support for our brother bishop, the Most Reverend John D’Arcy. We affirm his pastoral concern for Notre Dame University, his solicitude for its Catholic identity, and his loving care for all those the Lord has given him to sanctify, to teach and to shepherd.
What’s more, the bishops’ appointments of 2009 thus far suggest there will be more strong leadership in the future. As you look at the list, bear in mind that five are archbishops and four of the dioceses– New York, Detroit, New Orleans, and St. Louis — are among the most influential in the nation.
There’s still plenty of good news in the Church today… if you know where to find it.

  • Micha Elyi

    Oakland is such a tough place for faithful Catholics that it requires two archbishops. [smiley=wink]

  • JSullivan

    Good news unless your diocese is losing one of these excellent men! [smiley=tongue] (BTW: Archbishop-designate Lucas is heading for Omaha, not Oakland.) We in the diocese of Springfield in Illinois are praying very hard for another bishop with the heart and mind of Christ:

    Lord God,
    you are our eternal shepherd and guide.
    In your mercy grant your Church of Springfield in Illinois a shepherd
    who will walk in your ways
    and whose watchful care will bring us your blessing.

    We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
    who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
    one God, for ever and ever.
    Amen.

  • Justin in Ohio

    I’ve been closely following the bishop appointments over the past couple of years. They should encourage all traditionally-minded and orthodox Catholics.

    There can be no doubt that Rome is actively seeking to appoint bishops who strictly adhere to the Magisterium, who are more traditional in liturgical and theological views, and who aren’t afraid to speak the Truth to Catholics in the United States, “both in season and out of season.”

    The Catholic Left has to see the writing on the wall. I think that’s why we see such venom and an increase in activity from outlets such as the National Dissenting-Catholic Reporter, America, Commonweal, and those types of publications.

    They know that there are very few liberal/lukewarm Catholics heading into our seminaries nowadays. The vast majority of seminarians and young priests are much more traditional and orthodox than the priests that were in seminary in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.

    In the next 20 years, the vast majority of U.S. Bishops will also lean heavily to the traditional and orthodox side of the Church. All the more liberal bishops will be in retirement or no longer of this earth. Does anyone really think the Vatican will appoint anymore liberal bishops to take their place.

    You’re losing, liberal Catholics….you’re losing your control over the American Church…and you’re kicking and screaming all the way out the door. Amen to that!

  • I am not Spartacus

    With all the new Bishops and the new springtime and such, does that mean the USCCB will have to change their slogan?

    You’re losing, liberal Catholics….you’re losing your control over the American Church…and you’re kicking and screaming all the way out the door.

    Justin, as Chairman of ABE Ministries, I would just like to write that I hope you are right. In the meantime, I am keeping despair alive.

  • Justin in Ohio

    I am Spartacus,

    I know it’s been a tough and painful few decades for traditional-minded Catholics, but you have to have hope, not despair, even in the darkest of times. As you know, the Church thinks in terms of centuries and millenia, not years or decades even.

    Hundreds of years from now, some scholars will probably just consider this “liberal” period of the Church after Vatican II as just a blip on the radar of the over 2,000 history of the Church. I’m thinking the Schism with the Orthodox, the Reformation, and other eras in Church history were much more frightening and painful for faithful Catholics than the present period we’re living through. Keep the faith!

  • Mr. H

    While I have been very pleased as well with the recent appointments and with many other things happening in the Church, I worry that it may not be enough to draw the broader body of Catholics away from the pull of our secular culture.

  • Pamela

    I share your concern, Mr. H., but I think it is inevitable that we have a smaller, yet stronger Church. As the saying goes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink it.” At least with good, strong, holy bishops, more people will know the water/truth is there. It is up to the people to chose to drink of it. All we can do is pray for them. And the bishops, too, of course.

  • Jacques

    I don’t intend to belittle the fresh optimism that Mr Hudson is displaying in this article.
    Put apart the timid support they are giving to their colleague Mgr D’Arcy, the US bishops courageously decided… not to take any action against the controversial Fr Jenkins who displayed in that sad issue the contempt which he held his hierarchy in (and mainly the local bishop).
    Yet I don’t speak of the deafening silence of the Vatican.
    Hard to swallow for the pro-life Christian and Catholic faithfuls who struggled for 2 months to oblige Fr Jenkins to rescind Pdt Obama’s invitation.
    Next time no wonder that they will stay at home.

    Jacques,

    I believe the reason why they didn’t “do something” is that the bishops that wanted to do something just didn’t have the power to do so. Unfortunately, the bishops conference still has a majority of liberal/progressive/moderate leaning bishops like Mahony, Trautman, Wuerl, etc.

    It will take time to get a majority of conservative, faithful traditionalists to become a majority of the bishops in the U.S. But it does seem that it will happen…it’s only a matter of time. So, pray that Pope Benedict stays with us for many more years so that he and his staff can continue to appoint faithful shepherds to replace some of the “spirit of Vatican II” types that are still in power in the U.S.

  • Pam

    Our Lady of America revealed to Sister Mary Ephrem (at the Convent of the Sisters of the Precious Blood, Rome City, Indiana) that she desired her loyal sons, the American Bishops, to process her statue into the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. and place it in a position of honor. She said that if they would do this, it would become a place of pilgrimage. She would protect the United States and work wonders here even greater than those that were granted at Lourdes and Fatima.

    These have become desperate times. When our Lady of Fatima’s requests were ignored, the world entered World War II. When Our Lady of Kibeho’s requests were ignored, 800,000 people were slaughtered in 100 days in Rwanda. Millions of our fellow American citizens have been murdered in the womb. Our Lady of America’s requests were made in the late 1950s. She has said that unless we reform our lives here, God would cleanse us with untold punishments hitherto unknown to our country. Perhaps 9/11 was just a warm-up.

    Come on, my dear Bishops, please be the knights in shining armor for Our Lady and our nation. Our future rests in your hands. It is time to work while there is still daylight. Don’t wait until it is too late!(http://www.OurLadyofAmerica.org)

  • pete salveini

    EXACTLY! that was over FIFTY YEARS AGO and STILL no episcopal awareness of the urgency of decision based on DISCERNMENT of the revelation. What is so disturbing is that THE ARCHBISHOP OF CINNCINATI,the bishops’ confrere,officially accepted the revelation, was the spiritual director of the seer, itself a RARE and POWERFUL WITNESS, and the hierarchy simply IGNORED HIS TESTIMONY. It’s like Thomas NOT BELIEVING HIS OWN FELLOW APOSTLES THAT JESUS AROSE! Archbishop Burke along with two other bishops PRESENTED THIS REVELATION, TAILOR MADE FOR AMERICA, to the gathered hierarchy in closed session of the Nov ’06 annual meeting.AGAIN 50 YRS LATER THE HIERARCHY IGNORED THE TESTIMONY! Part of the message was that the vocation of the U.S. was to help other nations with their temporal problems, help stop wars; its youth was to be a beacon of wholesome, healthy,CHASTE EXAMPLE TO THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD, and the AMERCAN CATHOLIC FAMILY A WITNESS TO THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY TRINITY IN THE FAMILY AS AT NAZARETH. If not accepted, Our Lady said America would indure much pain. With the ignoring of this PROPHECY FROM HEAVEN through private revelation, in 5yrs, Kennedy was assasinated,the pill and sexual revolution,(sex, drugs, rock’nroll) burst out, the Vietnam War, radical feminism, gay agenda, high divorce,one crisis after another and finally Sept 11 and the election of Obama. AFTER 50 YEARS AMERICA HAS TURNED OUT TO BE THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT O.L. SAID WAS HER VOCATION AND IS SPREADING ITS CULTURAL DECADENCE AROUND THE GLOBE. We can thank the American hierarchy the last 50yrs for this by their ignoring Heaven’s PROPHETIC MESSAGE TO OUR NATION! Will the bishops STILL IGNORE O.L. OF AMERICA? Remember this has been CANONICALLY APPROVED FOR ABOUT 40YRS!

    I believe the reason why they didn’t “do something” is that the bishops that wanted to do something just didn’t have the power to do so.

    Does every “Catholic” instructor of theology or philosopy at Notre Dame possess a mandatum from Bishop D’Arcy? Could he find out who the major donors are to the pre-eminent “Catholic” university in the United States, which is in his jurisdiction, and shoot them a personal, pastoral letter indicating concern for the Catholic identity of said university. Does he need the USCCB’s blessing for this?

  • Leslie Ewald

    I have always thought that the Bishop in Austin, Texas was quite liberal. Is that true? I hope he will be good for New Orleans.

  • Augustine

    I have always thought that the Bishop in Austin, Texas was quite liberal. Is that true?

    No, it’s not.

    He’s among those 80 bishops to speak out against Notre Shame and has been more than vocal about pro-life matters, praying in front of abortuaries with other people of life.

    He hasn’t been quiet about bad Catholic politicians either, though his actions were kept private, between him, the politician and his pastor.

    Under his 9-year leadership, the diocese seminarians went from a handful to about 40 and a similar number of people entering religious life.

    He’s brought the Dominican Sister of the Eucharist to town and the number of Catholic schools grew significantly.

    New Orleans is getting a fine leader and I’m sure that he’s very excited about shepherding his hometown. I just pray that we are blessed with so good a bishop.

  • Kevin J Jones

    One big reason the bishops had to speak out is because all the disinformation floating around about Catholicism finally became apparent.

    While it’s nice to see some episcopal action, this problem has been building for decades. We need to figure out how to recover and renew compromised institutions of higher education, lower education, and religious education.

  • John

    One minor detail: Oakland has a bishop, not an archbishop.

  • Dennis

    It was said “I have always thought that the Bishop in Austin, Texas was quite liberal. Is that true? I hope he will be good for New Orleans. ”

    Good grief NO!!!!! We here in the Austin Texas area will really miss this wonderful and good Bishop. Sorry but there is probably not a drop of liberal blood in his body. He is especially Pro-Life and supported Pro-life activities in our mostly godless Austin area.

    Just to comment that those of you who have responded are really being very nice. It is a good blog this time. The article is excellent as usual. Keep up the good work everyone!
    Many blessings to all!

  • Jack

    I will believe it when I see the evdidence. Too many times have I heard this kind of noise. It all comes across as phony, just like the John Paul 2 style optimism: smile, smile, smile, meanwhile kids are getting raped, Diocese sued to death, churches are closing in wave after wave, most Catholics are on birth control and have high rates of divorce and abortions, but keep up the optimism because the new springtime is here! Uh huh. I believed that before, I am not going to be fooled again. We are supposed to be happy while and cheer the hierarchy as everything gets worse and worse and worse. Just stay tuned and I am sure you will hear about another rash of church closings.

  • Marcie

    Also note the appointment of much-loved Rev. Lee Piche as auxiliary bishop of the diocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis. He will not be backed down by anyone the “left.” A wonderful choice. And a force!

  • Bridget

    I appreciate the ‘good news’ post! We need a mental break from the constant stress of fighting the culture occasionally.

    Looks as if money is more important than keeping it’s catholic identity. Given the unprecedented amounts he collected for the Notre Dame University, certainly Fr Jenkins is convinced that he is on the right path. Hence his stubborness not to comply with Bp d’Arcy.
    Hasn’t ND already lost it’s soul?

  • Mary Parks

    Thanks for the good news emphasis, but it is prudent to realize that an orthodox bishop can be just as corrupt, homosexual-friendly, or cowardly as a heterodox bishop.

  • Alessandra

    To the face of all clergy denigrators, hope i am allowed to celebrate the Appointments with a platter of stinking bishop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S…hop_cheese) and a good pint of Bishop Tipple (http://www.onlyfinebeer.co.uk/beer/2063/)[smiley=evil]

  • Thomas A. Szyszkiewicz

    The reason the USCCB did nothing to Notre Dame is because they couldn’t do anything. They have no authority over ND or any other school, for that matter. Just like any other Catholic institution, schools are under the authority of the local bishops or under the authority of their sponsoring institutions.

    As to seeing their statement of support to Bishop D’Arcy as being part of the good news, sorry Deal, I thought it was too little, too late.

    And yes, Marcie, Bishop-elect Piche is a fantastic choice. I’ve known him since he was a young priest and always knew he’d be a bishop. Believe me, he won’t stay long as an auxiliary, much to his ordinary’s chagrin.

  • Tom

    Does anyone know why Bishop D’Arcy continues to recognize Notre Dame as a “Catholic” university in accord with Ex Corde Ecclesiae, when it manifestly is not?

  • Rosina San Paolo

    I deeply appreciate the comments made on this article. It is good to get the nation-wide view of our present Catholic situation.

    Before World War II, our culture and Catholic Church, in the United States, was stable and nourishing. The breakdown of both began after the atomic bomb was dropped. It seemed to demoralize society and recovery has been difficult and painfully slow.

    When I read that Michael Jackson had died today, I wondered why he had such a hysterical, massive appeal. He was indecent and immoral in many ways. Perhaps that is why they loved and followed him. I believe the explosion of the atomic bomb had a terrifying affect upon people. Their motto became, as of old, “Live today for tomorrow you may die!” In so doing, they lost their own morality.

    For those who think this may be the “Springtime of the Church” as Pope John Paul II foresaw and those who see diaster ahead, I would urge you to read, “Lord of the World” by Robert Hugh Benson. You can find it copy right free on google.

    As for myself, my prayer has been, since the unthinkable division began in our Catholic Church, that I remain in the one, true, Holy Catholic Church.

  • TruthSekr

    Yea, that’s great, but the fact remains that many Bishops said nothing and this is NOT the true Spirit and purpose of those who are SUCESSORS of the Apostles. The only thing you really have to ask yourself is whether the Apostles/Disciples of Jesus, and John the Baptist or Isaih or Jeremiah would sit back if Herod, or someone who supported infantcide, for example, were being honored by someone connected to the Church.

    The Bishops, in their cushy, cushy lifestyle are more concerned it appears about maintaining their comfort and political correctness, and in may ways don’t represent the Apostles, unless the Apostles of wimps is what you want. I heard that at the Bishops conference last year a well respected source said he knew for certain that about half the Bishops supporetd and would vote for Obama. I wouldn’t doubt it.

    Many Bishops can’t/won’t even take a little persecution let alone martyrdom for defensing the unborn.

  • Terry

    Read Pope Benedict’s Encyclical:ENCYCLICAL LETTER
    DEUS CARITAS EST
    OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF
    BENEDICT XVI
    TO THE BISHOPS
    PRIESTS AND DEACONS
    MEN AND WOMEN RELIGIOUS
    AND ALL THE LAY FAITHFUL
    ON CHRISTIAN LOVE

    Politics is to be considered separate from the Church!
    So now that Obama is meeting Pope Benedict in July, do we catholics picket the Pope? Do we castigate our Pope because he dare meet with Obama? Is our Pope Benedict “showing poor judgement” in meeting with Obama? Should our Bishops castigate the Pope openly?
    What’s so disturbing to me as a pro life catholic is that so many commenters here are sharing about how happy they are that our Bishops get involved in political matters!? Like that’s the most important ingredient to stewardship a Bishop can have. These Bishops must know that there is a lot of cleaning up to do right now in each one’s Diocese’ let alone jumping into political frays!
    Wake up catholics!! Nothing, and I repeat nothing will come from politics since it is a haven for, and run by the weaknesses found in [smiley=shock]man.
    It’s time to spend our lives, including the Bishops lives, in PRAYER, FASTING, and PENANCE! That’s the ONLY WAY to fight the evil one and his weapon of abortion.
    Yes! Pray the Rosary and other prayers in front of these dens of death! Picket and share with those going in, the Love God has for their child within and for them!
    But you will find NONE OF GOD’S PEACE in politics! God’s PEACE will NEVER come from politics! Whether you are a Bishops, religious or lay!

  • Carolyn

    How blessed are those of us in the Archdiocese of Denver with our Archbishop Charles Chaput! He is a great rolemodel for the other bishops of the United States and the world. He has published a book, Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life. In Feb. ’09 he spoke in Toronto about the book and he may have coined the phrase “Catholic political vocation.” (I’m not sure.) Nevertheless it was a fabulous speech! He described “hope” as a virtue requiring courage and strength to say “no” when needed, rather than “hope” being semantically degraded to a political slogan as was the case with the recent presidential election in the U.S. So, I challenge those who believe Pope John Paul II to be Polianic, to embrace hope and continue to pray for its increase through the rosary, as well as faith and love. Hope must be something lacking in our fallen human state as we have need to pray for it. Do not despair. The Truth has already won. Our priests and bishops are becoming more and more orthodox. Pray for them and tell them how grateful you are for their pastoral care by telling us the truth. I also want to encourage Catholics to consider political vocations.

  • Terry

    “Political vocations??” I have NEVER read in Holy Scripture anything like that coming from Jesus, or the Apostles and Disciples of Jesus. I have never heard the Blessed Mother EVER say the life of mankinds Souls depend on us becoming people of “political vocations.” She certainly mentioned that the world we see another war in Her message in Fatima if mankind did not turn to Prayer and Fasting as well as the importance of saying the Rosary!
    This is part of the confusion and dismay many catholics have with our Church in America. If the Bishops spent as much time watching what is taught in their Dioceses from hired hands, bring rogue priests into line, and encourage homilies that explain the Catholic Church, it’s teachings, it’s Sacraments, the Scriture, and it’s Tradition to those who come to Church to just do their duty.
    Rather many of our Bishops try to beat each other to the political front, including elections (though indirectly) as if our Souls depend on the success of political decisions and arguments! I was taught the “old style Catholic education” that says the world would ALWAYS “hate” the followers of Christ and that Satan was and still is the “ruler of this world.” It’s puzzling to many catholics who know more about politics through the Church than what the Church is made up of (example: Receiving God’s Divine Mercy through the Sacrament of Confession, or even something as simple as explaining the taking Holy Water on our fingers and the great importance of why we bless ourselves when entering our Church’s.)
    It’s so sad seeing many bishops acting as the Evangelical Political Church leaders and diving into politics. Even many of these Evangelical leaders who have based their leadership on politics are becoming dismayed and are now beginning to see that ONLY PRAYER is the answer in this life. WHY? Because they couldn’t defeat the “ruler of this world” in any other way, and played his game as their flocks left, many losing their faith. The same is happening in our Church as catholics continue to leave what they were taught was what they needed in their lives. A vibrant Catholic Faith that came from Jesus and handed down through the centuries!
    Not a “political vocation” that plays right into the hands of the ruler of this world, who was and is a “murderer from the beginning!” We see that “murdering” with each Soul who leaves the flock and our Church.
    LEAVE THE POLITICS to the world and its ruler and follow Jesus, Mary and the Saints and live in the Spirit where true PEACE is found!

  • Brannen

    For those of you who despair at the inaction of so many bishops on mattters so crucial to our society (believe me I have been there myself) let me remind you of something very important. When Our Blessed Lord was falsely accused, scourged, spat upon, slandered and mocked how many bishops stood at his side? How many bishops followed him to Golgotha and knelt before Him when He cried out to heaven? Nine fled, one denied Him, one betrayed him and one stayed with Him while he died. Of the eleven who remained all made their peace and died for Him.
    Do not despair. If those men could realize their errors and impact the world in the way those 11 men did, then there is hope for even the worst of our bishops.

  • Benjamin

    I have always thought that the Bishop in Austin, Texas was quite liberal. Is that true? I hope he will be good for New Orleans.

    I know Bishop Aymond rather well and he is a wonderful shepherd for our people. I cannot think of a better man to be the new Archbishop of New Orleans. While I am excited for this change and the good it will bring to the Archdiocese of N.O., we will greatly miss Bishop Aymond in Austin.

    Luckily I have dual-residency in the Diocese of Austin and in the Archdiocese of New Orleans!

    May the Lord continue to provide us with such caring shepherds to guide his flock.

    Peace to all,
    benjamin

  • Terrig

    I just found this website through a link. I’m curious if anybody knows anything about the new Bishop in Austin – Joe Vasquez is he more traditional and orthodox or liberal. I can’t figure him out yet.
