I feel like I read somewhere that the bishop of your diocese deserves respect in a similar way to the Pope as far as “religious submission of intellect and will” is concerned, such as for statements he may issue (that is, they are binding in some way). Is that correct?
If YES that is correct, would that respect due to your individual bishop’s statements continue when they are no longer your bishop? Example: a bishop issues statement in 2016. In 2018 he goes to a different diocese. In 2018, does the 2016 statement still have any binding effect on you?
If NO that is not correct, thanks for the clarification
