Pope defines bishop’s role

I’m off again this week, watching the kids until camp starts next week.

But I’ll post now and then.

I was interested to read about the pope’s remarks this morning when giving the pallium to his new archbishops, Tim Dolan among them.

The story from Catholic News Service is here.

Interesting that he said that bishops should not act like “prison guards.”

“To shepherd the flock means to be careful that the sheep find the right nourishment,” which for Christians is the word of God, he said.
