Bishop Bootkowski Retires, Deo Gratias

On Pewsitter I stumbled across an announcement that Bishop Paul Bootkoski of the Diocese of Metuchen (NY) is retiring and his successor has been named.  I knew the name "Bootkoski" sounded familiar so I pulled up some old posts.  Now I know we can rejoice at his retirement.

Last year a theology teacher at Immaculata High School named Patricia Jannuzzi was fired from her job with full public approval of Bootkoski.  The reason for discharge?  Because she upheld the Church's teachings on marriage and correctly stated that at the heart of the gay agenda was the deconstruction of western civilization.  That's right!  She upheld the Church's teachings and that got her fired from a Catholic school.  Fortunately enough uproar ensued from Catholic blogosphere to shine the light on cockroaches as it were.  She was reinstated.

Bootkowski is to be succeeded by Msgr James Checchio, who was rector of North American College.  Let us pray for the bishop-elect.
