The ice begins to break in conservative chokehold of USCCB
As I opined last week,
I did not expect much from this week’s spring meeting of the U.S.
bishops’ conference. The leadership of the conference staff, aka “the
fifth floor,” has been a Francis-free zone and most of the bishops in
leadership positions at the USCCB tilt to the right. There are still
more bishops in the U.S. who consider this papacy a bit of bad weather
they hope will pass than there are bishops who have embraced Francis’
papacy as the breath of fresh air the Church needs.
