Los Angeles Welcomes Its Next Archbishop, José Gomez

From Catholic World News

Four thousand Catholics-- including seven cardinals, 59 bishops, and 411 priests-- welcomed Archbishop José Gomez as coadjutor archbishop of the United States’ largest diocese at a Mass of Reception on May 26. “As I near the end of my time of tending this corner of the Vineyard, the shepherd’s staff is being passed to Archbishop Gomez,” said Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles. “Mahony goes; Gomez comes. Christ alone endures. The Church’s foundation and its future is not in either one of us. Our foundation and our future are in Christ alone.”
