Cdl. Laghi and the U.S. episcopate

| No Comments

Noting the passing of Pio Cardinal Laghi, former apostolic pro-nuncio to the United States (grant him eternal rest, Lord), here is a 1990 analysis by Jesuit Father Thomas Reese, on the bishops appointed during Cdl. Laghi's tenure 1980-1990.

Fr. Reese's data disproved some liberal myths about the Laghi bishops, and his article contains one quote that might reinforce conservative complaints: Laghi's predecessor Abp. Jean Jadot said: "There is no difference between the appointments made by Laghi and myself. Most of the candidates appointed I would have proposed as my number one choice."
