It was just announced on Church Militant today that Bishop Milan is closing three Byzantine Catholic Churches in the Eparchy of Parma
amd merging them into one parish.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

I think it is worthy to note that the Congregation did not revoke Bishop Milan's decision, but suspended it; allowing the dissenting parishes to remain intact until the bishop's reasons for realigning the parishes involved can be carefully examined. Perhaps the Ruthenian Metropolitan Archbishop might have a bit to say about the issue, also. It's a question of hearing all sides. The cynicism expressed in the posts that I've read above serve nothing to foster church unity. Before all our rituals and rites, spoons and cups, we must be Christians first.
