San Antonio's Archbishop José Gomez named by Pope to be successor to Cardinal Roger Mahony upon his retirement as Archbishop of Los Angeles.

The people of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the largest archdiocese in the United States, now know who will be the successor to Cardinal Roger M. Mahony upon his retirement. San Antonio's Archbishop José Gomez has been named the "coadjutor archbishop" of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles by Pope Benedict XVI, which carries with it the right of succession. As coadjutor archbishop, Archbishop Gomez will aid Cardinal Mahony in the governance of the diocese and would take his place if he is absent or impeded. The appointment was made public by the Vatican this morning at 5 a.m. San Antonio time,

The Vatican did not name a successor to Archbishop Gomez when making the announcement. An Archdiocesan Administrator will be named for the Archdiocese of San Antonio on an interim basis upon Archbishop Gomez's departure which is scheduled for May 26.

Is it appropriate to sing a chorus of "Ding, dong, the witch is dead?" Or at least retired?
