THE RESULTS ARE IN AT THE USCCB

Rocco at Whispers in the Loggia reports:

USCCB President with 85% of the vote: Cardinal George, OMI
VP: Bishop Kicanas (Thank God it's not Trautman!)
Treasurer: Archbishop Kurtz
Cultural Diversity in Life of the Church -- Archbishop Gomez
Clergy, Consecrated Life and Religious -- Cardinal O'Malley, OFM Cap.
Catholic Education -- Auxiliary Bishop Curry
Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs -- Archbishop Gregory
Evangelization and Catechesis -- Bishop Malone
International Justice and Peace -- Bishop Hubbard
Canonical Affairs and Church Governance -- Auxiliary BishopPaprocki
Protection of Children and Young People -- Bishop Cupich of Rapid City

As of Thursday, the Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy (BCL) as we know it will become the Committee for Divine Worship. Rocco reports that this committee will consist of an "all-star" lineup "TBA". Bp. Trautman will have stepped down, and Bp. Serratelli will have taken place. This change in reins is most welcome! Bp. Serratelli is also the US Representative to the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL).

Peace,
BMP
