    Thanks so much jav. I have posted both articles plus two others.

    As I said elsewhere. Father Legger has been stripped of his priestly faculties in the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface. He has not been defrocked. The media often think that being stripped of faculties etc is the same as being defrocked. Not at all. A priest can be stripped of his faculties in one diocese and still be granted faculties in another diocese: he may be unable to say Mass or hear confessions in the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface, but he is still a priest in the Roman Catholic Church.
