Notices on the Sede Vacante...

The Chancery of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis recently issued two notices related to the status of the vacant see. Both are interesting in their own right, but the second notice (about the portraits of the resigned bishops) has a humorous element as well. It seems to suggest that parishes have been mailing the portraits back to the Chancery in a manner similar to what many faithful did when they received Archbishop Nienstedt's DVD on the proposed marriage amendment. Kudos to the pastors of the parishes that thought of it.
