Chicago’s own Paprocki, now bishop of Springfield, supported U.S. bishops’ independent action at November meeting

Did not notice this at the time, but we might take special note of it even now:

Last week, several Roman Catholic bishops, including Paprocki, urged colleagues at their national meeting [in November] to take some sort of action on the clergy sex abuse crisis despite a Vatican order to delay voting on key proposals.

Paprocki suggested a nonbinding vote to convey a sense of the bishops’ aspirations regarding anti-abuse efforts.

“We are not branch managers of the Vatican,” he said. “Our people are crying out for some action.”

Smart guy, good guy.
