Ecclesiastical bibs and bobs
  • The recent episcopal consecration. Of my old acquaintance Fr Michael Dahulich, now the OCA Bishop of New York. Father came from the Johnstown Diocese, the 1930s split from the Greek Catholics to the Orthodox nothing to do with religion and really about the local Irish wanting to take the Ruthenians’ married priests away. He and the diocese always struck me as good old-school (in upstate Pennsylvanian parishes essentially it’s 1962), what the Greek Catholics might have been if Vatican II hadn’t ruined things. Anyway of course I wish him well.
  • My last word on mainline Protestants’ internal affairs. Likewise I wish them well.
