Papal Error – new bishop – Oakland or Auckland? Oops!
Lost in translation – or Get that guy Mapquest
The powers that be in Rome- were seeking a new Bishop for Oakland California
and selected a man with 2 years of pastoral experience
“He has been a pastor of a church once – from 1985 to 1987 in Western Samoa.
That background makes him unusual as a bishop…” SF Chronicle
Oakland and Auckland are often times confused especially by Italians… and Argentinians
And what Did Father Barber say when he was told he had been selected?
