Pope Benedict Appoints Fort Worth Bishop Kevin Vann To Diocese of Orange California ( Various Links)

Update - Whispers has the Bishop's statement at his press conference in California plus some other observations.

Update 2-
Bishop's Statement to The Faithful and Friends of the Diocese of Fort Worth

Statement from the Diocese of Fort Worth on Vann Appointment to Diocese of Orange.

Huge loss for Texas ( which  by this movement has 3 Sees vacant - Tyler, El Paso , and now Fort Worth) Bishop Kevin Vann of Fort Worth has been named Bishop of Orange County out in California. You know the place with that Crystal Cathedral we just bought. . BY THE WAY Bishop Vann took a great interest in that Cathedral just a few weeks ago hmmmm. )

Rocco Palmo has a good initial  post up just after this was announced in Rome at  For Orange, A Moving Vann – B16 Taps Fort Worth for Crystal Chair . As Rocco notes this  is  2012's most significant handover of an American see in terms of size. In other words pretty huge and important.

Sad news for Catholics in the Diocese of Fort Worth and the entire Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex as they wake up this morning. However great news for Catholics out in Orange County out on the West Coast.

Bishop Vann and his growing Diocese of Fort Worth has been a subject of great interest to me on this blog.

First for those concerned about Catholic patrimony in our architecture see my recent post Restoration and Expansion of Sacred Stained Glass In Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth ( Poor Man's Scripture )

To say the least Bishop Vann has been a huge friends to the  new Anglo Catholic Ordinariate and for Anglo Catholics coming to home to Rome for some time. One of the oldest Anglican Use Parishes in the United States is in his Diocese.

On the Vocation Front he has held his on with a current vocation class of  31 seminarians.

His affirmative Orthodoxy is on display for all to see. For instance please notice that he just brought in the growing FOCUS campus college ministry movement to his Diocese via the University of North Texas.

These are just a few thoughts I have had at first. However the Roman Noon appointment meant 5 a.m my time. Since I kept spelling FORT Worth as FORTH  Worth 4 times in this one post for some odd reason  I am going back to bed.

Look for updates on this post later in the day. We got some time since it appears the news conference releases shall be joint and done at same time in both Dioceses. ( 1 p.m. Central Time )

Largest handover of a power diocese is quite some time. Interesting choice...a real techno guy as well.

That's because Facebook can help you a lot in marketing strategies and selling different products on the internet. You don;t have to be fake, just forgive yourself for the bad pictures taken at a bad moment and praise yourself for the ones that give you respect. On top to the number of friends, you can get social proof using your wall ' all you need is few people who write on your wall on regular basis.

Aside from the usual fare of alternative rock, jazz, and
pop, among others, this station also showcases the work of and connects
with indie artists from all over the globe. In addition to music, they broadcast preaching and teaching from Jimmy Swaggert and other pastors and teachers who work with the ministry.
So you can imagine how much your choice has increased from before.

Try simple games and check how your internet connection is and then move on play more games.
It combines RPG elements and strategy for
a very interesting game where you must stop the rows of pirates ship from making their way down the river.
For the purposes of this game, a "set" is at least three
cards of equal value such as three Jacks or three fours and
a "sequence" is made up of at least four cards that are of the same suit and run sequentially such as three, four,
five, and six of spades.

This is a small selection of great music I listen to, written from
my own perspective as a fan and a user, with the aim of inspiring others to listen too.
I know a lot more music now than before and have
changed my tastes. The only issue I have is that they really should have found a
way to double face the can, so it will work better in store

Similar to the cue ball that is shot in pools; this
game involves coins and strikers that are essential
to play carrom game. At the same time, web games seemed like the
future of gaming, and we wanted to be a part of it.

It bears mentioning that there are also games and
simulations available to those wanting to learn to trade stock index
futures. Say you're doing as well at Chemistry, and as you are doing at Maths Extension 2, then instead of splitting your study time equally between the two (just because they are both worth 2 units each), you should spend more time on Extension 2, simply because it scales higher. But what happens when a player runs out of race tokens.

Una Musica Brutal, by Gotan Project: from Buddha Bar IV.
Palma has a range of top-notch clubs, and Tito’s is one of
the most popular. This was a live performance recorded by Dutch national
television, 2 April 2011 (therefore it isn't fully cough free), by four pianists: Elisabeth Bergmann, Marcel Bergmann, Sandra van Veen, and Jeroen van Veen.

Once you have done this, set the burn speed to 4x and click Burn and
wait for it to complete. Imagine never having
to worry about what to wear to work, and even the infuriating traffic jams
that never seem to end. t love the unself-conscious little boy or girl, the
