This Sounds Like an OPC General Assembly

The Vatican also has problems with equipment:

After that little bit of news, we settled into the second round of voting for the Post-Synod Council which turned out to be a hoot. I mentioned in an earlier post that the first round of voting had been inconclusive, with votes scattering in all directions. This time we were given the names of the 10 bishops who had got the most votes in the first round in each of the four continental sections (Africa, America, Europe and Asia-Oceania). Of these we had to choose three.

Off we went, pressing our little voting machines at the seats. The trouble started when the technology failed in one of the three sections of the Hall. We were voting for Europe. We all agreed that Europe had always been a problem. Technicians were called and ran from all directions. I didn’t realise we had so many technicians looking after a system that is so erratic. It might be better to have a new system and fewer technicians … but the union mightn’t like that.

A poor church rich in resources acts like a truly poor church by Western standards.

  1. This doesn’t sound like Roman Catholic unity:

    By any measure the most transparent and raucous of synods held over the past half century, the meetings bared one long and widely known truth that church leaders have desperately tried to hide from those outside the hierarchical culture: The men who inhabit the highest levels of church governance often disagree deeply over important matters.

    That such a simple and understandable reality is no longer a secret is, in the final analysis, a healthy development. That the dissent in this case came from conservatives should put to rest forever the silly notion that one’s “orthodoxy” depends on an unthinking, uncritical agreement with everything uttered by the pope or the magisterium.
