With all the people of the land where I live, I rejoice to hear the news that Pope Benedict has

- Appointed Bishop David A. Zubik of Green Bay, U.S.A., as bishop of Pittsburgh (area 9,722, population 1,956,597, Catholics 781,811, priests 531, permanent deacons 37, religious 1,455), U.S.A.

I worked with this great-hearted man for three years. It’s good to see him come home to Pittsburgh to “preside in the place of God,” as Ignatius said to the Magnesians.

I am not rejoicing as you are.

I am from Green Bay.

I sympathize! We in Pittsburgh mourned the first time we lost Bishop Zubik.

You were on the radio today and mentioned an article you wrote on Martyrdom and Young People. Where was that? Is there any place it is written on the internet?

Yep, right here.

I was elated and breathed a great sigh of relief to hear the wonderful news! Sad for Green Bay, but overjoyed to have Bishop Zubik back in the ‘Burgh!!!
