New Appointment to Replace ++Muller of Regesburg
Edit: and so ends the speculation that the Pope's Secretary, Msgr Ganswein would be getting a See.
Passau/Regensburg (kath.net/KNA) Rudolf Voderholzer (53), should be named as new Bishop of Regensburg says a report on Thursday. "Passauer Neuer Presse" reported on Wednesday under a statment from "very well informed Church circles". The Diocese hosted a press conference at 12 o'clock for an extraordinary press conference with Diocesan Administrator Wilhelm Gegenfurtner.
Voderholzer is a student of Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Muller, who has directed the Diocese of Regensburg since the beginning of July and was called as Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Doctrine and the Faith. The Munich born man's primary occupation is as a theology professor at the University of Trier. Otherwise he's been given an assignment by ++Muller to lead the Regensburg Institute of Pope Benedict XVI., which is republishing he work of [Pope] Joseph Ratzinger.
