Today the Holy Father appointed the Reverend Monsignor Joseph Bambera Bishop of Scranton and Father Terry LaValley Bishop of Ogdensburg, leaving just three vacant sees in the United States. They are, in order of vacancy: Springfield in Illinois, Harrisburg and La Crosse.
Curiously, both of the Bishops-Elect were the Diocesan Administrators of their respective new Dioceses.
Could we be next? Please, Lord, grant us a new shepherd!
