Apparently it has been reported that Bishop schneider told not to travel. From Fr. Z:-
Everyone knows that the plural of anecdote is “data”.
Something seems to be up.
First, Italian Vaticanista Marco Tosatti says that Francis, through the US Nuncio, is telling bishops not to invite Card. Burke to their dioceses, and if they can’t prevent his presence, not to attend the event. HERE
Another story was circulating that the Holy See had forbidden the great Bp. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary in Astana, to travel. It seems, however, that they have only told him not to be outside of his diocese – except for necessary meetings of conferences, etc. – for more than the designated 30 days (can. 395 §2). HERE
The last thing they want is the circulation of certain ideas.
George Orwell wrote that some pigs are more equal than others.
It would be interesting to start a Bishop Watch effort. I wonder how many days bishops such as Card. Maradiaga or Cupich are outside their dioceses.
