Discerning the Terna

The BBC's William Crawley has written a very interesting post on his blog, Will and Testament, concerning the appointment of a new bishop for Ireland's second largest diocese, Down and Connor. The current incumbent, Patrick Walsh, submitted his resignation upon reaching his 75th birthday last April (2006). The post includes a letter and questionnaire/job description, supposedly sent by Irish Papal Nuncio, Giuseppe Lazzarotto, to certain persons within the diocese. The questionnaire certainly exercised the righteous indignation of a panel on Crawley's programme, Sunday Sequence. The general consensus was that as a job description the questionnaire fell very far shot of what is acceptable in the modern world.

I've seen your comments on the Crawley blog.

I would welcome comments from some of your colleagues on "The Jesus Project"

This is a blog in which a number of churches are involved here in the USA and Ireland but I would like to get some further opinions into the thread of thinking as a way of understanding how others view things.

I'm interested in well drafted rational statements of views.

I moderate the blog but unless something is clearly out of line I approve all comments for publication.

Best wishes,
Michael N. Hull
