His Excellency, Bishop Doran, makes a candid reference to the Holy Father's humble example of distributing Communion to kneeling Catholics only. The bishop of Rockford (Illinois) also goes as far as to say that the Holy Father's action has MEANING!
This is most certainly a "crack in the dike" of USCCB solidarity. The USCCB's attempt to undermine the Pope's intentions by "staying mum" cannot survive an open discussion! The USCCB's "stand for Communion " [and "stand against the pope"] rule can last only as long as discussion is strangled and ignorance reigns.
