The First Episcopal Appointment of Pope Benedict XVI

. . .is Msgr Raymond Centène, Chancellor of the Diocese of Perpignan. The notice of the appointment of Msgr Centène as bishop of Vannes is on the Vatican's website here. If the early word about Msgr Centène is accurate this is extremely good news. Example: this link is to the website of the journal Kephas. The page linked shows the editorial board. The second name is that of Msgr Centène. Kephas is the French language journal of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter. Other good things are being rumored here in the recusant corner of the Church. Indications are good. But, as always, we shall see. . . .
