Bearing witness …

… A Pandemic warning from Cardinals Sarah, Müller, Zen, Abp. Viganò - National Association of Catholic Families. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

As Pastors, they also reassert the authority of Catholic Bishops to decide autonomously on all that concerns the celebration of Mass and the Sacraments.” They also claim “absolute autonomy” in matters falling within their “immediate jurisdiction,” such as “liturgical norms and ways of administering Communion and the Sacraments.”
“The State has no right to interfere, for any reason whatsoever, in the sovereignty of the Church,” the prelates write, asking that restrictions on the celebration of public ceremonies be removed.
It would be nice if Philadelphia’s pusillanimous archbishop would take heed.
