The Changing Balance of the Bishops' Conference
There are some comments appearing in the blogosphere that speak very highly of the newly enthroned Bishop Moth of Arundel and Brighton. Fr Ray Blake has some very complimentary things to say about him. The appointment of Bishop Moth completes the transformation of the South Coast dioceses, once notorious for their liberal tendencies. With Bishops Egan, O'Toole and Moth now in charge, these dioceses are emerging as beacons of tradition. The impact of these appointments, together with most of the other episcopal appointments of the last few years, has transformed the complexion of the Bishops, Conference. Now the traditionalists are in the majority, and this will surely bear fruit in the coming years.
