A lot of you don't like the perspective of the LACatholic blogger, but ah well. You know, I link to anyone with an interesting story. And he's got one today:
Cardinal Mahony announced in the June 3 issue of THE TIDINGS that his auxiliary bishop, Gabino Zavala, will be taking a sabbatical from July to December. According to the report, the purpose of the sabbatical will be "to provide [Zavala] time for spiritual and theological renewal, an ecclesial experience and time for the exploration of personal interests and talents."
As the blogger notes, this is odd and sudden, and not business as usual. The article he cites and quotes from is not online.
