There was a bit of a dustup recently in the blogosphere, at Pray Tell and elsewhere, around Fr. Martin Fox’s sharp criticism of his brother priests in the AUSCP. I’m told that the authorities in the Cincinnati archdiocese were made aware of the entire online “dialogue.” And now the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has announced that Fr. Fox has been appointed to full time parish ministry and relieved of his duties in the Office of Priestly Formation. Fr. Fox has told his new parishioners that the archbishop responded to his request for full time parish ministry.
This isn’t the time to re-open the “dialogue” or criticize Fr. Fox further. Pray Tell wishes him well in his new assignment.
