New Trad Bishop for Denver

From What Does the Prayer Really Say:

Quote: I am sure that you have heard about the new bishops named early this morning. [I sure have!]

Msgr. Conley, currently of the Diocese of Wichita and formerly in the Congregation for Bishops and graduate of the famous KU humanities program and now appointed to be auxiliary bishop of Denver, is to my knowledge the first bishop appointed recently who had regularly celebrated the TLM as part of his priestly service (not merely an occasional Mass here and there). [And that must have been a consideration, frankly.  There is no way that it wasn’t.] I believe that he and another priest alternated celebrating the 8 AM Sunday TLM in Wichita, the only such Mass in the Diocese of Wichita.  This is huge!  Maybe second to Summorum Pontificum. [That would be a "YES" vote!]  Now we have a bishop who is not only a friend of the Extraordinary Use of the Mass, like Arch. Burke, but one for whom the EU was an important part of his ministry.  The EU is part of new bishop(s).  It is part of the mainstream of the church.  This is great news for fans of Tradition.

He'll probably hang around Denver for a few years, season up a little, then get his own Diocese.  I think Chaput is still "young", so basically this guy is being prepped for somewhere else.  Great news.
