Los Angeles archdiocese issues prayer for Cardinal Mahony’s successor

Catholic World News - February 12, 2010

Stating that “the process for the selection of the next Archbishop of Los Angeles has already begun,” Auxiliary Bishop Edward Clark of Los Angeles announced in a memorandum that 74-year-old Cardinal Roger Mahony, in consultation with his council of priests, has approved a prayer “for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the selection of the Cardinal’s successor.” Bishop Clark asked that the prayer be said during the celebration of Mass and the recitation of the Divine Office.

    How's this prayer: "Don't send us another one like the other one."

    "Search" for his successor? Maybe I am naive or misinformed, but I did not think that it was up to the priests and axillary bishops in a diocese to choose their bishop.

    A friend from the LA Archdiocese sent me his prayer for the Coadjutor: "Maranatha."

    Maybe they should pray for an archbishop with a good memory.
