What’s Next for Bishop Strickland?

Shannon Mullen
Bishop Joseph Strickland, who was removed as the leader of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, by Pope Francis on Nov. 11, leads the recitation of the Rosary outside the site of the U.S. bishops’ fall assembly in Baltimore on Nov. 14.

COMMENTARY: This sad tale of the Texas bishop is one of partisanship threatening communion, social-media extremism and new rules for the removal of bishops.
