    and a timely post by fr z:

    "So, Archbp. Burke and Card. Ca?izares are now members of the Congregation for Bishops."

  2. Dr. K says:

    It's excellent news for Rochester! The pieces are all falling into place for a good selection by the time 2012 comes around, pending the good health of many, especially the Pope.

    If the new bishop is orthodox, he will be going on the cross. 30 years of dissent has wormed its way into every aspect of diocesan life. It will take a saint to root it out. Those who are the leaders of dissent will try to destroy the new bishop, like what happened in Scranton, Pa. We must not only pray for a good bishop, but also pray he has the strength and perseverence to get the job done. and we must help him in any way we can.

  4. If you're interested in a narrative version of how things work, I strongly recommend Thomas Reese, SJ, Archbishop. You may not think much of Reese as the editor of America, but as an organizational sociologist he's really professional.

  5. A very hopefully sign is that Archbishop Raymond Burke has been named to the Congregation for Bishops. The dicastery recommends appointees to the Holy Father.
