It is technically simple, obvious, and necessary. It is, however, as far I know, unprecedented: The new Archbishop of America has called for a teleconference with all the priests – and Metropolitans – of the Archdiocese.
He asked to speak with them, to bring them closer to one another and to their Archbishop.
To coordinate and harmonize the way they perform their priestly mission. And so that the Archbishop can listen to them and hear about their concerns and needs.
To connect them to one another, so they could finally become a “team.”
And if some of the priests and hierarchs are absent – the Archbishop will learn a lot from that too.
But why not do the same with the presidents of the communities? And with the chairmen of the educational Committees, and our school directors?
Your Eminence, it is a very good idea. Time to get serious.
