Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, gave an interview while paying a visit to England. He had much to say about the current crisis in the Church - and he is correct. Rorate Caeli has a text of the full interview.
He states that "the real crisis of the Church is anthropocentrism", that is, man putting himself as center of the church rather than acknowledging the Christocentric nature of the Church. For this he decries the reception of Holy Communion in the hand.
I won't go into a full analysis now. Suffice it to say it's well worth your time. Pray for him and the few who are like him. We need fearless shepherds now more than ever.
