The ex-Communication of four Bishops who broke from the Church post-Vatican II has happened. What does this mean? It means there is now a place at a communion table to share in the body of Christ for men who broke their vows (a sacrament), for men who led people away from the church for decades and who (at least one of them), is an ardent denier of the Holocaust.

It is astounding to me that a woman who gets an abortion, a politician who refused to ban abortion, a couple who use contraception or a gay man in a relationship are kept from full Communion with the Church, but now, these men are not.

The Church is not losing relevance, it is slowly committing suicide.
