Letter: Testing My Faith

Dear Editor,

Our newly ordained Catholic Bishop David Kagen has been on board with the Bismarck Diocese now for six months. In this short period Bishop Kagen has done irreparable damage to the diocese. He has adapted the top down Vatican, do as I say management style. This is hardly what Jesus had in mind for our church.

As a lifelong Catholic I am not jumping ship because I am encouraged by some very brave priests, religious women, and other lay Catholics.

We will not sit still and let many U.S. Catholic Bishops hijack the wonderful reforms of Vatican II initiated by the beloved Pope John the Twenty Third. We shall overcome!
