Mixed feelings

The news is out: Bishop Robert Carlson of Saginaw has been named the new Archbishop of St. Louis.

Those who made this choice are certainly wide awake. Bishop Carlson has been tireless and effective in helping the diocese of Saginaw emerge from its former rocky state. He was appointed to Saginaw in 2005, but it seems like it was just yesterday. Michigan Catholics will miss him. A lot.

First response -- "Oh, no!" ...Although the Archdiocese of Detroit did OK in the last switch...
I think I'm antsy because our parish is waiting to hear who our new pastor will be (current one is returning to Nigeria) and I'm kind of change-averse. God bless Archbishop Carlson!
