News from Boston?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jun 09, 2003

A few readers-- and more than a few reporters-- have been asking for CWN's input on a story published yesterday in the Boston Globe, alleging that a new Archbishop of Boston is likely to be appointed tomorrow.

CWN hasn't commented on that report, because we don't think it's accurate. In other words, it's a non-story.

We might be wrong, of course. We'll know tomorrow morning!

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    By the looks of the stories running lately on CWN the parishioners of Boston, if they really want courage for mortification, should be praying for a Bishop from Africa. First, the Nigerian Cardinal and then a gutsy display from Nigerian Anglicans. Were that we should be so blessed!
