Fessio back at Ave Maria - history doesn't quite repeat itself

Having followed a path strangely reminiscent of another priest-sacking related to a certain prominent US Catholic family, the Fessio story takes an original turn.
Father Joseph Fessio will become a “designated theologian in residence” who will maintain a room on campus, assume teaching responsibilities and make further plans for student study abroad, Fessio and university officials said.
“I’m back and I’m glad,” Fessio said.
But Fessio said he was never given a reason why he was asked to resign Wednesday, other than administrative differences.
Asked what he thought of not being told, the 66-year-old priest quipped: “That may be one of our differences.”
