FAR OUT! A NEW METROPOLITAN IN THE FAR WEST


BISHOP COSTELLOE GREETED BY THE HOLY FATHER

FAR OUT!  A NEW METROPOLITAN IN THE FAR WEST

The announcement last night of the appointment of Bishop Tim Costelloe S.D.B. Auxiliary of Melbourne as Metropolitan Archbishop of Perth brought to a conclusion the waiting in the West. It also added yet another appointment of Salesian to a vacancy, a phenomenon which has developed with some vigor following the appointment of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone S.D.B. as Secretary of State (or in effect Prime Minister of the Curia).

The selection of Bishop Costelloe was predicted on 17th August,2011:http://coo-eesfromthecloister.blogspot.com.au/2011/08/costelloe-could-get-perth.html

There are about 60 Salesians in Australia and another 10 from this Province serving overseas. They could be forgiven perhaps, if they each began to wonder how they might look wearing a mitre!
ST.MARY'S CATHEDRAL PERTH 

Comments by people who are themselves firmly orthodox concerning the new Archbishop when he lectured in Theology are entirely positive. His experience in that area, as well as in the oversight of Catholic Education, will stand His Grace in good stead in his new appointment.

Any thoughts on who will be Brisbane's or Hobart's next Archbishops?
