I agree with you!<quoted text>
A Bishop who is "Business smart?" No wonder the church went down the drain. A Bishop who is "business smart." That says it all! Looks like "business" is the number one priority! Yep, I could hear Jesus telling a crowd of people that we need our Bishop's to be "business smart." That would be what Jesus would say he wanted in his church.
We have lost all perception on what the role of a bishop is intended to be. He is not called to be the chief business agent of the diocese, but the chief shepherd or teacher. He is called to teach the Gospel.
I can not think of a recent bishop who has put emphasis on his role as a "teacher" of the faith. Instead, they relate more to the worldly role of a CEO. With this Bishop, I think he is a lazy CEO, who delegates too much to others. He doesn't seem to teach, lead or do much of anything. The only thing one can count on is that he won't be in the office on any Monday.
As for a Polish bishop, I agree that we don't need another Pole or Italian or German or African or what have you. We need a person, a person who possesses qualities that would make him a good bishop. His ethnicity wouldn't really be an issue, as when we focus on such a thing, we show our own prejudice.
If the Gospel became the most important thing we focused on, all the rest would fall in place.
