I have a lot of smart readers so let me throw this question out there...
Who came up with the birdbrained idea that Bishops are supposed to be 'princes'?
'Princes of the Church'??
It isn't from Christ or of Christ as His directives were to flitz about preaching truth with nothing but the sandals on their feet and to follow the path to His Marrtydom, which most of them did.
Bishops (and in fact priests) give up their families, possessions, homes and if necessary their very lives to be a beacon to uphold the moral precepts of the Catholic Church in a hostile culture.
They are not princes and laity has to stop creating the thrones for them to sit their weak, craven and indulgent fannies upon. It is enabling and an obstacle to the merits of their vocation: They are martyrs.
