Retired Episcopal bishop becomes Catholic March 30, 2007

A retired Episcopalian bishop in New York has entered the Catholic Church.

The Episcopal diocese of Albany has revealed that Bishop Daniel Herzog quietly entered the Roman Catholic Church after his retirement on January 31.

In a letter to his Episcopal successor in Albany, Bishop William Love, the new Catholic convert disclosed that he had been thinking of taking the step for several years, but deliberately waited until his retirement so that he would not "walk away from my office and leave vulnerable this diocese which I love." The election of his successor, Bishop Herzog said, "has given me the liberty to follow my conscience" and resign from the Episcopal hierarchy.
