More U.S. bishops to turn 75 this year

The Catholic News Service (CNS) reports that this year, 14 U.S. bishops, including two cardinals, will hit 75, the age at which bishops must submit their resignation to the Holy Father -- who might accept the resignation but does not have to.

CNS also notes that 14 other U.S. bishops, including three cardinals, are still on the job even though they are already 75 or older. Cardinal Edmund Szoka is 78 and Cardinals Adam Maida of Detroit and Theodore McCarrick of Wash., D.C., are 75.

Turning 75 in 2006 will be Cardinals William Keeler of Baltimore and Bernard Law.

So let's keep praying for all our bishops and for appointments of great new bishops who are orthodox, actively anti-abortion and anti-the "gay" agenda.

May it please the Lord to grant us holy bishops! May the Holy Father accept all manditory resignations such as the one from Washington and may worthy successors be named.

Lord, have mercy on us!
Grant us faithful shepherds.

Ave Maria!

Your a Californian. Tell us what you're hearing about the new Bishop of Reno. He has a record. Have you heard anything about him, besides that he served in a high position under Quinn and Levada?

I think Levada on the Congregation of Bishops means a passel more Niederauers than we would have chosen.
