Pope names successor to Bishop Mixa

Catholic World News - July 08, 2010

One week after Pope Benedict directed retired Bishop Walter Mixa to devote himself to “silence, meditation, and prayer,” the Pontiff on July 8 appointed a new bishop of Augsburg.

Bishop Mixa’s successor is Bishop Konrad Zdarsa. Ordained a priest of the Diocese of Dresden-Meissen in 1974, the 66-year-old prelate had served as bishop of Görlitz since 2007.

    (via BBC) Bishop Walter Mixa said in a statement that he was "sorry for causing many people grief" without specifying exactly what he meant. -- For an apology like that, I concur with the recommendation for silence.
