Bishop Trautmann has been named the head of USCCB Liturgy Committee which is bad news for anyone concerned about true Catholic Liturgy. Amy Welborn at Open Book has listed the committee Trautmann has put together and it includes Bishop Emil Wcela of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Bishop Wcela is a typical liberal bishop who considers "inclusive language" to be a main issue facing the Church over the past twenty years. He has pushed his liberal agenda for years, while ignoring corrupt priests, which by his own admission included a couple of his close friends. (His article published in America magazine - "The Abuse Scandal: What Did I Miss?- March 15th, 2004 is not available online for free.) How this man can be trusted with something as important as Liturgy is beyond me. It was rumored that Bishop McGann, the bishop who ignored the priest-molesters for over twenty years, wanted Wcela to be his successor. Thankfully the Vatican had other ideas and went off Long Island to find more orthodox bishops. So now there is one last chance for Wcela to have some influence in the Church - which is bad.
