The Terna (list of three candidates) is drawn from the entire Metropolia.

Let us not forget Father Cimbala. He took care of Passaic for 2 years.

His Grace, Bishop John, was a great shepherd. He will be missed by everyone I know. I hope they search for a replacement outside the eparchy. In fact I predict that this will happen. There is no shortage of ambitious priests.

An ambitious priest seeking the episcopacy probably should be disqualified on that basis alone...either in Catholicism or Orthodoxy.

You can say that again DMD! Those who aspire to that position tend to do the most harm.

There are precedents for a cleric of one Church being canonically transferred to another Church to serve as hierarch - two who come to mind are, most recently, Father Archimandrite George Gallaro of the Melkites having been ordained as bishop of the Eparchy of Piana degli Albanesi, and His Excellency Hil Kabashi, OFM, a Byzantine Croat, who, since 1996, has served as Administrator ad nutum Sanctae Sedis of the Apostolic Administration of Albania Meridionale of the Albanian Greek-Catholics.

Many years,

Neil

I have the same view for politicians.

I think it as Arthur C. Clarke's Imperial Earth, set in the US quincentennial, that had the present chosen at random by a computer from a list of qualified people for this reason, with the note that they wanted someone who would have to be dragged into office kicking and screaming, but would work hard to get time off for good behavior . . .

And yet St Paul writes, "This saying is trustworthy: whoever aspires to the office of bishop desires a noble task," (1 Tim 3:1).

Isn't Bishop George Gallaro a cradle latin?
