This past weekend at Dominican University College, there was a conference on the family. Both Archbishop Prendergast and Bishop Riesbeck were there.
Bishop Riesbeck gave a talk while Archbishop Prendergast presided a Mass on Saturday morning. During his homily, the Archbishop contrasted the Synod of the media and the Synod of the Fathers. He also spoke of the false mercy of those who do not challenge people to live God’s plan for the family.
I didn’t attend Bishop Riesbeck’ talk, but I have no doubt that it was orthodox.
In light of the confusion that emanated from last month’s Synod, it was beautiful to see these two prelates come out and offer some solid guidance to their flock.
