Third youngest Bishop elected at age 40

Today it was announced that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI confirmed the election of Sviatoslav Schevchuk by the Ukranian Synod as head of the Ukranian Church, the largest group of Eastern rite Catholics in union with Rome.

As a point of interest, at just 40 years of age (he'll celebrate another birthday in six weeks), he is the third youngest Catholic Bishop in the world.
