More propaganda from Linz

More propaganda from Linz

Austria. On Monday the Catholic-Theological Private University of Linz gave canon lawyer amd Redemptorist, Father Bruno Primetshofer, an honorary doctorate which was reported by the Diocesan newspaper. The priest compared in his speech the Latin Canon Law with the Code of Canon Law of the Orthodox Eastern Churches. He claimed that for the Byzantines it was "unthinkable" that a bishop could be appointed without the involvement of dioceses. The reverend gentleman awaited the day when "the rigidity of the Western canon law no longer prevails."

I wonder if this guys equally appreciates "the rigidity" of the East in matters liturgical...
