It's Official: New Archbishop [Gomez} for Los Angeles
El Tiempo Ha Venido -- Reports: (Archbishop) Gomez Up to LA (Catholic Caucus)
[To replace Cardinal Mahony] Vatican rumor: an American prelate in play?
Los Angeles Getting a New Archbishop (Part 1)
Los Angeles Getting a New Archbishop (Part 2)
Yes, and pray for him! The LA Times is going to hit Gomez hard, just like the NYSlimes did with Archbishop Dolan!
My humble prayers are for you, Archbishop José Goméz.
You’re an answer to mine.
The wailing of gnashing of teeth has already started in SA.
We don’t want Archbishop Gomez to leave us.
On March 20th, he ordained our newest Priest under the Pastoral Provision. He invited Mother Angelica’s Poor Clare Nuns to open a foundation in San Antonio, and they accepted, and are here in San Antonio now.
He’s much beloved, and we’ve only had him here for five short years.
I hear the hurt in your post. Hopefully Pope Benedict will give you another loving Archbishop to replace Archbishop Gomez.
I wish the new bishop well, but I am a little uncomfortable that this article makes him appear a “hispanic” first and a Catholic maybe third or fourth.
“This dark night is about to break into dawn.”
Maybe someday it will be the turn of poor, bleeding Idaho-God-Help-Us to receive a faithful bishop. Right now I’d settle for a faithful priest.
Read the Part One and Part Two links above. In the part one, Michael Barber explored Hispanic possibilities for the Archdioces of Los Angeles. In Part two is looked at Bishop Olmstead of Phoenix.
That may be why you detect a Hispanic slant.
Then, think of LA — what do the Catholic Church have there now? Hispanics — a multitude of them — not to belittle the numbers of other Catholics.
I think Archbishop Gomez will bring many Catholics from the LA area back to the church — Did you read sockmonkey’s post above about the sadness in San Antonio diocese?
Check out this first hand opinion of Archbishop Gomez from another thread. Thanks, sockmonkey!
Good news ping!
I just don't understand, haven't they listened to him when he mocks people.
Perhaps we need someone in Chicago who is as courageous at B16.
Where does the Archbishop fall on immigration?
Does he tend to believe there are no restrictions on immigration?
Or does he, as the church teaches, believe a people have a right to limit immigration if it threatens to destroy their society?
Best wishes to Archbishop Gomez and the Catholics of the L.A. Archdiocese.
And to San Antonio, of course.
It’s like the sugar coating on medicine. It will get him into liberal L.A. with less rancor than, say, Chaput (his former boss) would face.
One of Chaput's. This could get interesting.
A non-argument that is easily solved - just deport the entire family.
This is GREAT news for the Diocese of Phoenix.
You are losing Bishop Olmstead, right?
