O'Malley to Boston?

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 30, 2003

Associated Press is reporting that National Catholic Reporter's Rome correspondent John Allen has told various news outlets that his sources indicate that the next Archbishop of Boston will be appointed this week, and will be Capuchin Bishop Sean O'Malley.

Personally, I think this would be wonderful. Bishop O'Malley has been in Palm Beach such a short time, but this appointment would certainly indicate that the Holy See wanted to put the ideal person in Boston, and the long-suffering Catholics of Boston deserve that. If indeed this appointment occurs, Bishop O'Malley needs all of our prayers, but Boston Catholics will have received a great sign of hope.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Bishop O'Malley is a wonderful and holy priest. I knew him when he was the Capuchin-Franciscan founder of the Spanish Catholic Center in Washington, DC. He lived a very austere way of life, and you never saw the man out of his habit. He is a man of deep faith and deep prayer. Even though he has a quintessentially Irish name, it would be almost like getting a Hispanic Archbishop of Boston, so dedicated has he been to the Spanish apostolate. Any (Arch)Diocese that has him has a blessing!
