You mean, this Jean Jadot?
Almost as creepy as this picture which reminded me of the caricatures of +Williamson
I don’t get it…
read the link I provided and you will get it
Perhaps the Holy Father wanted to cleanse said titular see or at least give those Catholics living there a better model of what a faithful man of the Church should be? Let us redouble prayers for the repose of Archbishop Jadot’s soul.
Has there been any definitive word over whether Wagner in fact submitted a request for resignation, or whether the Holy Father asked it of him — and either of those were the case, that he has in fact resigned — or perhaps whether this was all media posturing?
I believe he did in fact submit a request that the Holy Father withdraw his nomination and said nonimation was in fact withdrawn. Notice behind his name in the Line of succession for said titular see it says: “resigned”
The link Diane posted is so slanted and prejudicial that I find it laughable that anyone would read it and think they have any clear picture of the deceased archbishop. Although, admittedly that’s the kind of journalism (if one can call it that) that you can expect from the Wanderer.
Matt, what exactly do you find so objectionable about Diane’s link to The Wanderer article. In fact the obituary article published by the the National Catholic (Dissident) Reporter basically praised Archbishop Jadot for those same things. I guess it depends on your perspective.
A question regarding Titular sees: When one who has been named a titular bishop is chosen to become a residential bishop, does he cease to be titular bishop of said territory? For example, if H.E. The Most Reverend Joseph Perry, titular Bishop of Lead, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago were to become, say, Archbishop of Chicago, would Lead [wherever that is] become an open see, ready to accomodate a new titular bishop? I noticed that all the former titulars of Zuri ended their tenure with death. Were none ever named residential bishops?
I guess now I understand more what all the fuss was about. Quite the change. I’m still not sure what to think about what happened there. Seems like priests shouldn’t be able to reject bishops appointed by the Holy See. No? Sets a pretty bad precedent, I think.
Eternal memory to Abp Jadot!
He gave us such gems
Like Rhode Island’s
Bishop Louie Gelineau!
Pray for the soul of Jean Jadot, he surley needs them. His infamois nomination are still among us, along with the chaos, confusion, novelties, and fabrications of the last 45 years.
