The Church Moves Forward

Traditionally, episcopal appointments for the United States were made on Tuesdays. However, today, we have a notice that many people have been waiting on for many weeks, the replacement for Archbishop Levada as Archbishop of San Francisco, CA.

Before we talk about who was appointed, let's be frank about a basic point: San Francisco is going to be a tough field. There are a lot of situations which are going to actively conspire against the proclamation of the Gospel, perhaps more so than anywhere else. So, let's all agree to pray for the appointee.

The new Archbishop of San Francisco is Mons. George Hugh Niederauer, formerly of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, UT. Ad Multos Annos!
