American OD Bishops?

Vaticanisti has the scoop – there’s four, not just the one numerary.

Life imitates art!
Couple decades ago we were amused by the conceit of Fr. Guido Sarducci’s ‘Vatican
Gossip Columnist,” on Saturday Nite Live TV.
Now, we actually have one!

One? We have Rocco, Jacob, Vaticanisti, and the Beach Bunny. Any others?

::Deep sigh::
If, as Vaticanisti says, Bishops Finn and DiMarzio are not going out of their way to announce their membership in the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross (NOT Opus Dei, by the way), why is it anybody else’s place to announce it from the rooftops??

Is this really “a scoop” by Vaticanisti?
In fact, all the bishops worldwide in Opus Dei’s Priestly Society of the Holy Cross (including the four American bishops) are listed in John Allen’s new book on Opus Dei.
Lots of advance copies of John Allen’s book have been mailed to book reviewers and are circulating out there, so I would bet that John Allen’s book itself is, directly or indirectly, the ultimate source of the Vaticanisti posting.

Vaticanisti should get his basic facts straight. A supernumerary diocesan priest is not a member of Opus Dei.
