An appointment remembered.

Congratulations to Bishop Julian Porteous, Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney, Australia, who has been appointed by the Holy Father to the Archdiocese of Hobart, Tasmania. This bishop, who I knew when I was in Sydney, was always full of joy and so focussed on the mission of the Church. I know that he will be missed in Sydney, but his new mission as Archbishop in Tasmania will, with God's grace, bring great joy and renewal to the Church there. 
Bishop Julian is presently taking part in WYD in Rio; may this time be also a moment of preparatory grace for him before he takes up his new munus in the Church.
