Bishop O’Connell on Benedict’s Resignation

My local CBS affiliate (Philadelphia) tends to do good coverage of the Church: even-handed, expansive, and not obsessed with scandals uber alles.

They did an interview with my bishop this morning that I thought was respectful (they even address him properly) and gave this fine academic and shepherd a chance to explain the news in context.

I can’t embed it, so watch it here.

My earlier comments on the news are here.
