My post on Bishop Morlino on funeral vestments stimulated a good discussion. Thanks, all. But I’ve closed comments there because I’m not sure the report I received was accurate. I failed to track down solid confirmation before posting, and I apologize. Ordinarily I’d make a phone call or email a colleague. I’m in the thick of National Catholic Youth Choir summer camp but that’s no excuse.
Correction: I don’t know whether Bishop Morlino is mandating or simply making strong suggestions about funeral vestments. I look forward to finding out. I’m sorry for any confusion the post caused.
However much I share the bishop’s concerns on this issue, I’m hoping he’s just suggesting and not commanding. We don’t need another battle in any corner of our church right now.
