Synod, Take 3!

Hello all once again.  One item that absolutely bears mentioning is that the 23rd General Synod of the Polish National Catholic Church has not only elected a new Prime Bishop (check out this article, with a short interview with PB Elect Mikovsky), but has elected on the first ballot a new bishop.

Very Rev. Paul Sobiechowski, of St. Joseph’s Parish in Davie, Florida, has been elected bishop by the body of the General Synod.  Major props to Father Senior Paul, who has endured a bit of turmoil over the last month or so as he has heeded the call to the episcopacy.  Is he my new boss?  Is Bishop John Mack, the sole Auxiliary Bishop in the church to be my new boss?  Or is candidate C, yet to be elected, my new boss?  Time only will tell, as news continues to “leak” from Niagara Falls, Canada.

Update: The day was spent deliberatinga variety of topics.  As per every synod ever, the diocesan bishops gave their reports and old business was discussed.  The synod is chugging along as synods do- with emotions flaring and unrest coming about every so often.  Our job isn’t particularly to worry about exactly what is happpening; it is to pray that God is present throughout and has no reason to want to leave.  Keep your prayers up for our synod, the delegates, and the clergy as we ask God that all decisions be inspired by His Holy  Spirit.
