Well, the news is good for those reading this blog, at least.
The ground was heard shaking over there in the neighboring diocese of Saginaw. That was Bishop Carlson just churning the soil one more time to prepare for the new crop.
Rocco Palma covers the story in his blog as follows:

From Carlson Country
I'm told to "prepare for the gnashing and wailing of teeth beginning tomorrow in Saginaw...."
A friend briefs that, in the Michigan diocese, Bishop Robert Carlson is "publishing a pastoral letter (being sent to all homes in the diocese) about his directives for implementation" of the General Instruction on the Roman Missal.
Word is that some highlights are:- A clarified, standard recipe for Eucharistic bread- Firm directives on who can and cannot preach [as many of you know, this has been an issue in the diocese]- All parishes must have kneelers by 2009.
Nothing too odd, no? At least, not to these ears.
