Five comments on this article -- Archbishop Gomez: Everything you need to know

Archbishop Gomez: Everything you need to know

UPDATE (11:42PM): No, Archbishop Gomez, did NOT cover anything up! SNAP is charging that Archbishop Gomez helped cover-up a scandal in San Antonio. Really? The more I read about this, the more clear it becomes that these charges are unfair. I'm posting all of this in a separate place. See the exhaustive discussion here.

UPDATE (12:57pm):
Wrong, he is still a member of Opus Dei. I have heard it reported that Archbishop Gomez is a "former" member of Opus Dei. This is incorrect. Although Archbishop Gomez answers directly to the Holy Father, he is still a member of Opus Dei. In fact, in his pastoral letter You Will Be My Witnesses, the archbishop explains that he continues to be deeply influenced by St. Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei: ". . . my approach and understanding of these matters owes a great deal to my appreciation of the spirituality of St. Josemaría Escrivá. I continue to find St. Josemaría’s teachings on sanctity and apostolate to be both profound and practical" (no. 33).

UPDATE:
I'll be on NPR this afternoon talking about the appointment of Archbishop Gomez between 1:45pm and 2:10pm.

Since I've had multiple threads going on Archbishop Gomez, I'm going to consolidate everything here into one post. Consider this the exhaustive one-stop-shop for everything on the new coadjutor bishop of Los Angeles, the successor to Cardinal Mahony.

Keep coming back because I'll be refreshing the information.

In my experience, but SNAP and VOTF are organizations which have attempted to turn the sex abuse scandal against the very bishops who have done the most to combat it. Very rarely do you hear these groups causing any stir at all in places like Los Angeles, Rochester, NY or Albany, NY.
