Way to Go Cardinal George

Cardinal George when he visited my parish in December 2005.

Cardinal George elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

November 13, 2007

Cardinal Francis George, a staunch Vatican loyalist, was elected president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops today.

This elevates George’s profile in the American church. But the position is more symbolic than powerful since the Vatican approves all major decisions.

oh sweet! You seem to have many of the best Catholic clergy over there. I don't mean to sound envious but... I um. I am a little bit. :)

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
