Now, in an interview with the Papal web site Petrus, Archbishop Ranjith has slammed the recalcitrant bishops again and spoken of "an episcopal rebellion" going on. Catholic World News reports (click on this post's title):
"Archbishop Ranjith complained that in some dioceses, bishops and their representatives have set out policies 'inexplicably' limiting the scope of the Pope's motu proprio. He charged that the resistance to the Pope's policy has been driven by 'on the one hand, ideological prejudices, and on the other hand pride -- one of the deadliest sins.'"
It would seem likely that the Archbishop is making these statements with the permission of the Pope, and even at his request. What do you think?
