Father Wagner has not yet signed the letter asking for the nomination to be withdrawn

....and no statement yet from the Vatican on Father Wagner. Canon law does not allow for withdrawal from ecclesiastical appointment under duress.

More soon from High Noon in the Diocese of Linz. A leading church liberal has called for a "cessation of hostilities". They think they have won- but bullies can never be permitted to win- this applies to the playground and applies to the Church.

Upper Austria has a sad and odious track record- Hitler was a bully in international politics who was allowed to get away with it for far too long.

More soon!

Does this mean that he has NOT asked the Holy Father to withdrawl his name? Does it mean he may yet be consercrated?

(Thanks, Gillibrand, for all you do to keep us abreast of the goings-on in Europe.)
