Bishops' Conference News

  • "America's Catholic bishops pulled a shocker Tuesday in picking their new president, disregarding tradition and precedent by rejecting the current vice president and instead choosing a man seen as more outspoken and conservative" — U.S. Catholic bishops buck tradition, choose N.Y. archbishop as president.

  • "The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops elected Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York to be its president on Tuesday in a surprise move that reaffirmed the conservative direction of the Roman Catholic Church in America" — Dolan Chosen as President of U.S. Bishops’ Group.

  • A useful reminder from the outgoing president — Orthodoxy necessary but 'is not enough': "Orthodoxy is necessary but not enough; the Devil is orthodox. He knows the Catechism better than anyone in this room; but he will not serve, he will not obey."

  • Another useful reminder that "[a] Bishops’ conference is a useful tool but should never substitute the role of the Bishop or act as an intermediary between a Bishop and the Roman Pontiff" — Bishops' conferences should serve Bishops, not replace them: Pope.
