A new bishop for Bathurst...

I'm out of town at the moment, with a very slow internet connection, so blogging will be a bit sparse this week (and comments might take a while to appear), but I couldn't resist this item.

Remember the story of Fr Dresser, priest of Bathurst Diocese, whose heretical book denying the divinity of Jesus was circulating via St Mary's parish in Brisbane?

I commented that one might have anticipated that his bishop would have long since taken action on the matter.

Well, it seems someone has taken action - yesterday's Vatican Information Service includes an item stating that the Pope has accepted the resignation of Bishop Dougherty 'upon reaching the age limit'.

An excellent signal.

Let's hope a few other Australian bishops take note.
