Quote:Does anyone have a list of Bishops appointed by Pope Pius XII.  If so please post it here.

If I had answered this off the top of my head, I would have said, 'None, now in 2015', but it turns out I would have been wrong! As of yesterday, 17 June 2015, there are seven left, and one is a Cardinal. From http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/bishop/sordb2.html

Cardinal Korec's history is interesting.  The website says he was secretly consecrated a bishop at the age of 27, only one year after being ordained a priest!  But then wasn't appointed to a See until 39 years later, after the fall of Communism.  God bless him!

We are down to six. His Grace Archbishop George Hamilton Pearce, S.M., Archbishop Emeritus of Suva, Fiji, Pacific (Oceania) died on the Feast of St Rose of Lima, 30 August 2015 at the age of 94.

O God, who didst raise Thy servant George to the dignity of bishop in the apostolic priesthood; grant, we beseech Thee, that he may be joined in fellowship with Thine apostles for evermore. Though our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
