Good News for Fort Worth

"Il Santo Padre Francesco ha nominato Vescovo di Fort Worth (U.S.A.) Mons. Michael F. Olson, del clero della medesima diocesi, finora Rettore del Seminario Holy Trinity a Irving, Texas."

Placet! I remember Bishop-elect Olson when he was a Basselin Scholar at Theological College when I was also an inmate there. He was very smart and very, very funny. I also like the idea of bishops being chosen from within a diocese, not always, but a good candidate should not be excluded simply because he is a priest of the diocese in question. The good people of Ft. Worth are getting a very good man as their bishop. Ad multos annos!
