    Point for Sklba

    I was under the soft assumption that Bishop Sklba was pretty much a leftover from the Weakland disaster in Milwaukee. Although the one time I did see and hear them together, Bishop Sklba seemed like a nice, perhaps holy fellow.

    He must be smart and able, since he is in some important positions, and Bishop did keep him on after Weakland's banishment.

    Anyway, to his credit he said something very good to the Jews that are upset over the prayer for them in the revised Latin Mass. Something about Salvation coming through Jesus...

    Meanwhile, Auxiliary Bishop Richard Sklba of Milwaukee, chairman of the U.S. bishops' Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, is trying to reassure the Jewish community.

    "Central to the concerns of the Holy Father is the clear articulation that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ and his Church," Sklba said in a statement. "It is a faith that must never be imposed but always freely chosen."

    Times are hard, but it is encouraging to hear the good said. Thank you Bishop.
