Location: Wisconsin, United States

I am a convert to the Catholic Church after serving in ordained ministry for more than nine years in another denomination. I hold a bachelor's degree in history, a master's degree in historical theology, and another in systematic theology, and am currently working (very slowly) on my doctorate. I work in Christian Education and Formation and teach at the University level. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and eight great kids! When I'm not studying, reading, or blogging, I enjoy eating and drinking! Like Bilbo Baggins, I have been specializing in food for many years, and my table has a high reputation!

Bishop William Lori, of the Diocese of Bridgeport, CT, has been appointed the 16th Archbishop of Baltimore! Rocco Palmo in his "Whispers in the Loggia" column has the details.

Bishop Lori, 60, is the head of the new USCCB's ad hoc Committee on Religious Liberty as well as the Supreme Chaplain for the Knights of Columbus (in which your faithful scribe is an active participant.)

My guess is that the Archbishop-Designate has a red hat in his future.

Congratulations to Bishop Lori!

Congratulations are also due to Monsignor David Malloy of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, the new Bishop-Designate of the Diocese of Rockford! Msgr. Malloy recently completed a 5-year term as the General Secretary for the USCCB, and is currently the Pastor of St. Francis de Sales parish in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin -- just down the road. Our loss is Rockford's gain.

Blessings to all,

Papa Z.
