Watch for more Vatican appointments

The very day the Card. Secretary of State was supposed to head out to Castel Gandolfo for a spell, we have an important curial appointment.

Watch for more in the near future.

    If it’s public, would you mind sharing? VIS is on vacation til September and I’m not sure where else the news can be found. Thanks!

    He takes the place of Archbishop Gardin, who has been given the DIOCESE of Treviso.

    NB: Abp Sorrentino of Rites.

    Will this upset the liberals in our Church?

    Then that will make me … smile. ;)

  5. Be fair. Treviso’s a good sized city, it’s gorgeous, it’s a diocese directly under Venice (which is a patriarchal see), it usually gets a bishop who’s an archbishop or a cardinal, and two of the guys who held the see are Blesseds. So it’s not ignominy.

    Mihi, profectio et nominationum et abdicationum http://www.vatican.va manet, meridie Romae cunctis, et priore die, conscriptis.
    Salutationes omnibus.

    Wow! This is very fitting for Pope Benedict to appoint Archbishop Tobin today (August 2-E.F.-feast of St. Alphonsus Ligouri). This also says alot. According to Catholic Heirarchy, Bishop Tobin was appointed this day and that he was the former Superior General of the Redemptorists. We all know how on fire St. Alphonsus was in the observance of religious life, manifested in his doctrine and life. I cannot help but think that Pope Benedict wanted to re-kindle this aspect (Religious Life) of the Church through the charism that emanates from a son (Archbishop Tobin) of St. Alphonsus. Reflecting back on the many moves of Pope Benedict, I cannot help but think that he is living up to the words or Our Lord: “Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves” (Matthew 10:16).

    ‘Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves’-oh, that’s a good one, oratefratres!

    Great description of our Holy Father as it comes to appointments!

    ” Rome
    Synod of Bishops
    XII Ordinary General Assembly

    ‘Consecrated Life as Radical Obedience to the Word of God’

    Most Rev. Joseph W. Tobin, C.Ss.R.

    (Editor’s note: The following is the October 13, 2008 address given by Father General to the XII Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on the Word of God held at the Vatican from October 5 to October 26, 2008. This was Father General’s 5th participation in a Synod of Bishops during his time in Rome .) ”

    Episcopi diocesani, septuagesimo quinto aetatis suae anno expleto, officium renuntiant, sed numquam illud abdicatione rejiciunt.

    In the past 500 years of diocese (24 ordinarii) I can only find a couple who were archbishops.
