[Stand Firm] 29 Mar 2007--As a personal note, I watched with great interest and admiration the stalwart reasserting laity and clergy of the Diocese of Tennessee go through five days [as I recall] of voting on a new bishop. They planned, researched, communicated, endured incredible pressure . . . . and they held firm.
Of all the statements issued so far, the one I find most impressive for its historical reflections on the actual resolutions and statement made by the HOB is this one by Bishop Bauerschmidt. I am quoting from it extensively.
