O'Connell to Trenton

Regular readers will know of the high regard in which I hold Father David O’Connell, CM, the President of the Catholic University of America for the past 12 years. Evidently, my opinion is shared by Pope Benedict XVI who named O’Connell this morning as the Coadjutor Bishop of Trenton, New Jersey. I am told that it is a gem of a diocese and they are getting a gem of a new bishop. Tanti Augurri.
