San Francisco Update


Our sources tell us Bishop George Niederauer of Salt Lake City was one of three bishops recommended by Archbishop Levada in a fairly recent meeting with Pope Benedict. This is a new name to add to the hopper. Things are heating up in San Francisco as the naming of Levada's successor draws ever closer. Bishop Daniel Walsh of Santa Rosa is still in the running. But this information may cause some of our dear readers to dab their eyes: a source of ours had a phone conversation recently with his friend Fr. Joseph Fessio, SJ and the good father said he has "no chance" and such talk of his being named archbishop is "a dream."

Yes, Fr. Fessio said exactly the same thing to Raymond Arroyo recently on an EWTN show.

He seemed to find the suggestion faintly amusing.

George Niederauer is one of the more intelligent bishops who hails from California. Former seminary rector in Los Angeles. He and Levada are seminary classmates and old pals. Levada was his episcopal co-consecrator. But he has deep ties to Mahony. This will hurt his chances. I think the SF appointment will come from left field. That is, someome not on our radar screens.

This is a shame...Things are too beaurocratic in the Church.

The Philly Flamer, Rocco Palmo, stole your story on Mr. Salt Lake without crediting you as the source. I find this action morally repugnant...almost as repugnant as Rocco's petty existance. This kid is in need of some serious maturation...notably in the psycho-sexual department.

kelley,

Glad to see you are back...and badder than ever. Thanks for bringing to our attention the supposed misdeeds of others. Let's pray it was merely an innocent oversight on the part of dear Rocco. We need to love him, not shun him. We need to wrap him in the security blanket of ecclesiastical lace and let him know he's truly wanted. Imbued with the overflowing charitable love of Christ, we impart our apostolic blessing upon Rocco and his "snowflakes."

Ok, what is the scoop on the rector of St. Patricks Cathedral.

Allow me to acknowledge my own twittyness: I meant "Hear! Hear!"

Just in case Rocco, in usual fashion, beat me to the correction. God knows he was blessed with the eighth sacrament: Grammatical perfection.

Puhleeze.

Heard Niederauer was offered the job and turned it down.

I'm disheartened by the selection of Bp. Niederauer to go to SF...again, it seems a man is chosen less for "what he knows than for who he knows". Mahony is still the leige lord...and virtually all the California sees
are fiefdoms. And we hope to "turn things around"...put the Church on a more even keel....repair the scandals by the appointment of a
bosom buddy of Mahony, Levada, Brown? Not the most encouraging
news to come out of Rome!
