New bishops for the UK

Two new appointments were announced today. Menevia gets bishop Burns of the Forces as its new bishop and Argyll and the Isles gets Mgr Toal, currently rector of the Scots College in Salamanca. The appointment to Hexham and Newcastle can`t be far off, surely?

Fingers crossed. Perhaps you could offer Mass for the cause Father?

These look like two more appointments from the British "Magic Circle".

Where are the 'exciting appointments' that fans of the Pope have promised us.

Are either of these two new bishops committed to the promotion of good liturgy amd music?

Thomas, I admit that neither of these two were regulars at CIEL but at least Mgr. Reardon didn`t get the Menevia job.
