RESIGNATION OF BISHOP PATRICK POWER

FORMER AUXILIARY BISHOP OF CANBERRA-GOULBURN PATRICK POWER
The Holy See has announced that the Holy Father has accepted the resignation of Bishop Patrick Power until now Auxiliary Bishop of Canberra-Goulburn.The announcement comes at the Bishop's age of only 70 years well short of the mandatory 75 yrs.


His departure will further diminish the dissident voices in the Australian Episcopate. A stormy petrel Bishop Power has been a darling of the Mass Media  including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for their anti-Church presentations and reporting, in view of his mostly contrary opinions when compared with the teachings and policies of the Church.


He is a strange character, affable and seemingly modest in personality he has nevertheless been a consistent voice against the interests of the Church over a long time. Only dissidents, and a few personal supporters will mourn his departure.
