Damned in a diocese AND an archdiocese, both in Missouri

Well, for Fr. Marek Bozek, it's about to happen very soon. He's already suspended by Bp. Liebrecht of Springfield-Cape Girardeau, MO, for leaving his assignment there against the Bishop's wishes to take an assignment at the (now suppressed) parish of St. Stanislaus Kostka in St. Louis, against the wishes of Abp. Burke. The board of directors at St. Stan's have been excommunicated (latae sentencae, meaning they really excommunicated themselves, all the Archbishop had to do was make it official) for hiring a suspended priest, despite pleas and warnings from the Archbishop.

Now the time has come.


It's a shame. St. Stan's is a beautiful looking church. Too bad the board of directors and Fr. Bozek screwed that up.

By all accounts, Bozek is a well-meaning man. However, his evident problems with authority and obedience were obvious from the early time of his seminary years.

Had the church not felt such a shortage of priests, he probably wouldn't have been ordained at all with his dissenting opinions on so many matters. I wonder what the St. Meinrad folks think of all this.
