Poll #15 – Bishop Clark’s Legacy

October 11th, 2009, Promulgated by Dr. K

Bishop Matthew Clark is now only 7 days away from 999 days until he must submit his mandatory retirement to Rome per Canon Law. Since we’re quickly approaching triple digits, it is a good time to take a look back at his 30 years as chief shepherd of the Diocese of Rochester. This new poll question is: What is Bishop Clark’s “legacy”? Below are the choices. Select only one, as difficult as that may be:

What is Bishop Clark’s “legacy” with almost 999 days left in his episcopate?

Results from poll #14: Which style of Catholic liturgy do you prefer to attend? This poll was much closer than I anticipated. I though it would be something like 75%-20% in favor of a reverent Novus Ordo, but the results were much closer. The final results were: 47% of 45 votes cast preferring to attend the reverent Novus Ordo, versus 42% preferring the Extraordinary Form. Thank you as always for your participation.

    Basically, if someone in the future asks you about Bishop Clark, what would be the first "legacy" of his that you would mention?

    I hope to be here. The counter is also improved for better real-time performance. Before it was rounding up the time, so you probably wouldn't see a change until noon rather than 12 hours before. Now it's working correctly.
