Hi all -

The Opus Dei cult, a part of the Catholic Church, just got its second Archbishop appointed in the US:


The other one in Myers in Newark.
Denver auxiliary bishop named San Antonio archbishop

For the Most Rev. Jose Horacio Gomez, becoming Roman Catholic archbishop of San Antonio will be a homecoming of sorts.

Pope John Paul II on Wednesday named Gomez - an auxiliary bishop in Denver - to succeed retiring Archbishop Patrick Flores, Texas' top Catholic clergyman for 25 years.

Gomez is a member of the conservative Catholic organization Opus Dei, which is admired by the pontiff. Some conservatives have accused Flores of a liberal theology that fails to strictly adhere to official liturgy and church doctrine.
