Posted on 04/05/2010 10:03:30 PM PDT by 0beron
Kevin Knight over at New Advent has a New Advent Exclusive up. It's a big picture of His Lordship with a link to the San Antonio Archdiocesan website.
The prodigious announcement of the new Archbishop of Los Angeles who will be Archbishop Gomez, could be made as soon as tomorrow according to Rocco at Whispers in the Loggia. There will be a press conference tomorrow at 10am.
We hope that the change will take place before Cardinal wreckovates St. Charles Boromeo Cathedral.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD
The long diocesan nightmare is over.
Mahony has caused irreparable damage to the Catholic Church in Los Angeles. JPII’s biggest mistake ever!
Blessed be the Saints, can this be true?
any background on Gomez?
He’s weak on liturgical discipline. Tolerates some of the worst abuses I’ve witnessed.
He’s a winner: relatively young (58 years old, I think) and strictly orthodox. He was Chaput’s protégé in Denver and is said to be tight with Opus Dei. This is definitely good news — and, Lord, we could use some about now!
Show me a bishop that doesn’t.
Maphoney might leave without handcuffs.
the RCC should NOT have protected that fool.
John Paul didn’t CHOSE the guy. He only ratified a bad choice made by his guy in DC. (Jardot, who stuck us with a lot of liberals)
Sadly, the Pope is given the authority, whether he uses it or not. And he ultimately has no one else to blame. Remember to pray for Pope John Paul II.
Jardot was Paul VI’s appointee, and the new pope was in no position to override the choice and Jardot and of the bishops who promoted Mahoney.
No time was spared on Cardinal Mahony and Gomez is an excellent fit -— born in Mexico and Opus Dei.
Pray for Arch-bishop Gomez that the harm is not irreparable. He certainly has his work ahead of him.
Whoohooo! Don’t know anything about the guy, but he’s better than Mahoney......
IT IS A MOST BEAUTIFUL PARISH. IT SHOULD NOT BE TOUCHED IN THE SLIGHTEST!!!
I live 2 hours away, but attended the St Charles Booromeo, recently, on March 21st. A high Mass. Gorgeous.
Wonderful Priests; full quality.
PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THAT CHURCH WITH ANY WRECKOVATION! FOR 20 YEARS IT HAS BEEN A FAVORITY CHURCH OF MINE......AND SO MANY OTHERS. (Sorry for the yelling..........)
This is some excellent news indeed....
Mahoney made St. John’s seminary very gay friendly, established garbage liturgies, plastered the churches with purple carpets, wrecked San Roque’s beautiful architecture in Santa Barbara, wants to mess with St. Charles in Hollywood. It’s been a tragedy for all good Catholics ever since 1985.
Please, to all my brothers and sisters, Mahoney is liberal but he still possesses the charism of a Cardinal. Please refrain from nasty comments.
Being a member of Opus Dei, the new archbishop will be like a cold slap in the face to the giddy modernists running amok in the archdiocese.
The party’s over!
thank you Jesus! :-)
It’s hard to rank them, there are so many.
If he is canonized, it will be necessary to explain, forever after, that a saint can still be a lousy Pope.
And he was a lousy Pope. Just ask the people who have had to live with Bernardin, Law, O’Connor, Mahony, Weakland, Wuerl, Dolan, and George, and...
There is no charism of a Cardinal.
Well, if he'd act like one, it might be easier to respect him as one. You should hear what one of my friends in LA says about him.
Is not charism, simply chaismata? My understanding is that there is charismata in all the hierarchy of the church.
Let’s hope this new archbishop is a lot more conservative.
Oh, so he is conservative, THANK-YOU.
For myself, I prefer using either conservative or traditional, not orthodox until our Eastern Orthodox brothers and sisters come home.
Plus built that monstrosity call Our Lady of the Angels Cathredral. Looks like one of those box stores.
He holds the office and wears the hat. Respect is due him regardless of his political inclinations.
Respect is due him regardless. He is there as a representative of the Vatican and can consecrate the Eucharist. Besides that, he gave me a blessing once and instantly cured me of a malady I had.
Respect is due him if he does his job. Period.
“Cardinal” is an honorific, and a function in the Church. But it is not a sacramental order. Most Cardinals are archbishops, a few have been priests.
I respect your opinion. However, I am not in the position to judge a Cardinal. Having said that, I hope his successor adheres to orthodoxy a bit better.
