“... truth will out.”

from The Virginian-Pilot:
"The next day, parishioners heard from the current bishop, the Rev. Francis X. DiLorenzo of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Richmond, and the news wasn't good.
"DiLorenzo said in a letter that the Rev. James E. Parke, a Roman Catholic priest who shared pastoral duties with the Rev. Michael B. Ferguson, an Episcopalian, was being relieved of his duties ...
"The diocese was sending a team to determine whether the way the parish worships is consistent with Catholic doctrine ...
"Parishioners took the letter as an ominous sign ... Some worried the diocese was preparing to impose changes that would undercut the parish and its unique approach to worship: Catholics and Episcopalians sharing in a combined liturgy."
Liturgy could be the key as Rome recently returned to a Latin-English translation of the Mass whose nuanced changes are still frustrating some Catholics.
