Bishop Fred Henry: A pastor after the heart of St. Ignatius of Antioch

His Excellency, Bishop Fred Henry
Calgary's Bishop, Fred Henry's strong intervention to defend Catholic morality is drawing flack from the usual sources. Bishop Henry's defense of an integral Catholic education, during this particular time of chaos within this structure across the country (e.g. Ontario's OECTA's continual dissent from Catholic teaching in areas of sexual morality and dogma) is particularly welcome. 

His thoughtful statement to Lifesite may be read here. A very similar statement to the Calgary Herald may be read here. I urge all our readers of good will to consider writing to the bishop to support him, to encourage him.

Praising him?

Isn't this the bishop that suspended the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, for asking the people to undergo a spiritual communion lest they be forced to give communion on the hand since they were under and edict to do so during the H1N1 scam?

This is indeed the bishop. We must, however, remember that the bishop - even if we do not like it - controls the discipline of the sacraments unless he receives further notice from the Supreme Pontiff.
