Wuerl to be Whisked Away to Washington?

"The fellow who comes should be a great leader. He should not be afraid of you people (in the media). He should be a holy man. He should be a great teacher, and he should teach more by example than with words. And he should be funny." – Cardinal McCarrick, Archbishop of Wasjington, DC

Cardinal McCarrick believes he will be retiring soon. There’s talk of Bishop Donald Wuerl replacing him. That greatly displeases some people. What are your thoughts?

    According to Fr. Wehner, +Wuerl has been offered a number of archiepiscopal sees before, but has turned them all down, as he likes being in Pittsburgh, his hometown.

    I think we’re stuck with him 😉 I’ve heard pretty much what Tom said, too.
    People who complain about Wuerl should live in the Erie diocese for a while. Having seen Bishop T twice now, he seems like a pretty nice, personable guy who just has some strange liturgical policies, but I still prefer Pittsburgh.

    Youngstown *still* doesn’t have a bishop, more than a year after Bishop Tobin was transferred to Rhode Island.

    Meanwhile, the Cleveland bishop retired and was replaced in one day.

    I just wish the pope will appoint someone soon to lead the Youngstown diocese…
