The Man for the Job

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Oct 28, 2003

Alvaro Corrada del Ro, S.J., is a good man. He is the Bishop of Tyler in East Texas. A few years ago (when he was auxiliary bishop of Washington, D.C.), he fell afoul of some potentates in the NCCB when he protested that sexual abuse cases were not being handled properly and the problem was not being systematically addressed. Had he been listened to, the last few years would have turned out very differently.

Here's a glimpse of how a bishop of great integrity and genuine spirituality deals with scandal.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    How refreshing! If only all of our bishops had acted as promptly, directly and morally.

    Someone just pointed out that Bishop Corrada's full name is Alvaro Corrada del Rio, not del Ro. My bad. A typo. But you can just refer to him as "that bishop Father Wilson likes." That narrows it down considerably...
