My friend John is in the US, visiting. I think he hits town here in the Midwest sometime next week. His bishop (John’s image from his blog, right) will be resigning soon, and is seeking Vatican permission to run for president. I have to ask him for the inside story on what appeared in the CNS news briefs yesterday, item #7.
Bishop Luis Santos Villeda of Santa Rosa de Copan:
But now that I’m retiring as bishop, I hope to speak with the pope and get his permission. I would no longer be bishop or have any church office, but would remain a priest. I could celebrate Mass privately in the morning before showing up in the presidential office at 8 a.m.
More of CNS on that diocese. Wow. Two stories in two days. That’s probably more stories than any major librul news network has done on Central America in any given year.
