Fessio Revisited

At 11:30 in the evening, this just in from DarwinCatholic:

"It seems that whatever exactly Fr Fessio and the rest of the administration's differences were, they've reached the compromise that Fr Fessio will assume the position of "Theologian in Residence" and both teach courses at AMU and help deal with their study abroad program. What exactly this means about the nature of the original disagreement remains unclear."

The memo from AMU President Healy is copied here. My money is on someone having gotten a phone call today from the Vatican. But what the hell do I know? In any case, the plot thickens...

[THIS GETS BETTER: A post from Dom Bettinelli includes an eyebrow-raising commentary from journalist Jay McNally.]

This begins to make sense.

Although there is some grinding of gears over liturgy, it's more administrative style/substance which is in dispute.

Or as another blogger (actually, 'ette) put it--it was hard to see Fr F and Mr. H in the same room at the same time for a long period.

Healy won the arm-wrestling.
