The Catholic Information Sevice blog includes, today, among the Acts of the Holy Father, that he:
- Accepted the resignation from the archdiocese of Los Angeles, U.S.A., presented by Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, upon having reached the age limit. He is succeeded by Coadjutor Archbishop Jose H. Gomez.
This is the end of an era for the vast diocese of Los Angeles. Say a prayer for Archbishop Gomez.
Cardinal Mahoney's most iconic monument will naturally be the cathedral he built. It really tells you all you need to know.
