Habemus episcopam!

bishop-elect lobesCongratulations to Bishop-elect Lopes on being appointed bishop to the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter.  Our bishop-to-be was a candidate at St. John’s Abbey the summer of 1995.  God obviously had *better* plans for him.  But Bishop-elect Lopes supports the flourishing of the monastic life in the Ordinariates.

And congratulations to Monsignor Steenson who has made no secret of the following: a) the Ordinariate is ready to have a bishop, and b) Msgr. Steenson would love to retire to the upper Midwest (which I hope he’ll now be able to do).  Since he has indicated his desire to be part of the St. Benet Biscop Chapter, he could well be one of the local members!
