Reap What You Sow
This Opus Dei Bishop was removed from his post by the Vatican. He complained that it was a conspiracy by the other prelates and the Vatican to remove him. This is interesting. Opus Dei relied on the Vatican power so that Opus Die could go into a country/diocese and do what it wanted, saying the Vatican trumps local church authority. Except there is a new sheriff in town. That is, we have a new pope. He does not seem to have the back of Opus Dei. What goes around comes around. I have seen this in Corporate life. A climber hitches himself to some rising star in the organization. As his mentor rises, so does he. But when the CEO changes, and the mentor loses favor/job, so does the fellow who hitches himself to his mentor. Priests sometimes do the same thing with bishops. Bishops are not forever. Only God power is forever. I try daily to hitch myself to God. I am certainly not the power.
