First Catholic Bishop Appointed in Russia Since Communism

[Catholic Herald] Fr Nicolai Dubinin has become the first Russian to be appointed a Catholic bishop since the fall of communism.

Last Thursday, Pope Francis appointed the 47-year-old Conventual Franciscan as auxiliary bishop for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Moscow and designated him the Titular See of Acque di Bizacena.

Since Church institutions were re-established after the fall of communism, no Russian nationals had been appointed Catholic bishops before now.

Good for Pope Francis. It is long past time this was done

That would be a good place to transfer Cupich and Tobin. Actually, the gulag would be more appropriate.

What do you want to bet that this man is a flaming "liberal" Catholic? Conventual Franciscan.

Gaybrielle already have his endorsement, so I’m guessing he’s awful.

This is actually good news, unusual for this blog.
