my Lord of Beantown

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | May 11, 2003

Actually, if nominations are open, I can think of someone who would be perfect for Boston, as far as I can see.

One would like to see in the next Archbishop of Boston someone who is deeply devout and prayerful, humble; someone who lives simply and breathes a spirit of cordial respect for others. He should be impeccably orthodox, and should have a track record of integrity in these sexual abuse cases.

I'd nominate the Most Rev. Alvaro Corrada del Rio, S.J., currently Bishop of Tyler, TX. Word from associates is that he is a genuinely kind man, someone with vision and great integrity, a genuine servant of the Church.

I think that would be a refreshing appointment -- enough to give even ME some hope for the future.
