Today comes news that Jose Gomez, Archbishop of San Antonio, will succeed Cardinal Roger Mahony as Archbishop of Los Angeles upon Mahony’s retirement. (Mahony reaches the retirement age of 75 in February.)
I’ve heard nothing but good things about ++Gomez. And he clearly has a heart for Anglicans. So I am glad to see this.
As for Mahony, his weak defense of the faith and of children is well documented. He should not have been allowed to retire in good standing. But if it be so, his retirement cannot come soon enough.
Housekeeping: I just now noticed that this is my 2000th post. Yes, I can be persistent.
