In a letter sent to Pfleger, Francis Cardinal George wrote, "your ministry as pastor of Saint Sabina Parish and your sacramental faculties as priest of the Archdiocese are suspended this suspension permits you to retain the office of pastor while temporarily without permission to function."Here's the news report that goes along with the story. Notice the endorsement Pfleger gets from Mayor Richard Daley. That should be the first indication to the Cardinal that he's making the right decision.
Cardinal Francis George stated in the letter that Pfleger's recent comments in the media about leaving the Catholic Church if he was assigned to a position at Leo High School was the cause for the suspension.
