Choosing Bishops


How are bishops chosen in the United States???


wrong section for this question…


Can you just answer the question please?


A concise guide to selection of Catholic bishops


Thank you very much :thumbsup:


The main problem with the whole process is that bishops forward names of people who might make bishops

They migh be as liberal and on the wrong track as the bishop who first nominartes them.

One thing is for usre–if you watn to bto become a bishop you need tokiss up to your current bishop. Mmany priests, do.

That’s why ultimatetly the process doesn’t work as it sholuld.

Pray for our bishops and for the people that they recommend.

Pray for God o transform every bishop into the bishop that He wants them to be!


Why do people get real silent when it comes to bishop selection? Is there anything to be afraid of about talking about it?
