Gus talks about a controversy in the Diocese of Richmond where Bishop Barry Knestout agreed to allow the consecration of a female Episcopalian bishop to take place at St. Bede Catholic Church in Williamsburg, Virginia. The Episcopalian church in that area doesn't have a sacred facility large enough to host such an event. It upset several in the diocese who started an online petition in hopes of preventing this from taking place. Bishop Knestout responded by calling it an "act of charity." Gus gives his thoughts on the matter and turns it over to the listeners.

    I agree with the mostly all of your callers. Have Faith in your bishop. The one lady from that parish was very articulate and she had Faith in Bishop Knestout. We can only imagine the rejoicing in Heaven!

    Having determined from this site the purpose for the request (Episcopalian church is too small) I must say I am opposed to the use of a Catholic Church for the ordination of an Episcopalian Bishop. The gender of the Bishop is not an issue. Catholic Churches and altars are consecrated for use by Catholics for Eucharistic and other liturgical ceremonies. Yes, reaching out for ecumenical purposes is commendable. However, the use of a social hall or other meeting space is acceptable-just not our sanctuaries.
