LOOKS LIKE MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL IS GOING TO GET SHAKEN UP
Spirit Daily links an article about the newly appointed Bishop John Nienstedt, said to be a theological conservative. He sounds like just what Minneapolis-St. Paul needs to wipe out the antics of places like St. Joan of Arc. But he will be controversial:
"I expect disaster there. I don't think those priests are going to accept him," said Irrgang, who now lives in St. Cloud. "He's a micromanager. He has to control everything. He hews the line from the Vatican without any question whatsoever. He's not a very good people person."
But the Rev. Philip M. Schotzko of the Church of St. Peter in St. Peter, Minn., praised Nienstedt's abilities.
"Bishop Nienstedt is a consummate man of the church," said Schotzko. "He thinks with, prays with and loves the church with everything he's got. He just follows very carefully the teachings and all aspects of church theology and moral teachings. You'll get a very committed man in that way."
Hold onto your faith, Minneapolis-St. Paul, because it sounds as though a strong breath of life is about to be blown into it!
