Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. 2 Thes 2:15
Bishop Barron for Madison? Not even a rumor, just total speculation. But I think it makes sense on a number of levels:1) He's from Chicago, so Wisconsin would be a return to his roots.2) He's been an auxiliary for a few years now, so he's learned the basics of bishoping.3) A small but visible diocese like Madison would be a good stepping-stone to a more prominent diocese.4) He's a "New Evangelizer," and so a good fit for a post-Christian city like Madison -- home of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.5) He's an academic, and so a good fit for a college town.
No thank you. I prefer Aux Bp Joseph Perry of Chicago because he celebrates the TLM/EF Mass just like Bp. Morlino did. We need someone who appreciates the EF Liturgy.
