Manila receives its new head pastor

Holy Father, last night, accepted resignation submitted by Cardinal Gaudencio B. Rosales of Manila, Philippines.  Cardinal was already 79 years old.  Then Holy Father appointed Bishop Antonio Tagle of Imus diocese as new archbishop of Manila.

Archbishop-elect was born in 1957 and well known as talented theologian and good speaker.  Also he has been a member of Holy See's International Theology Commission which was once headed by then Cardinal Ratzinger.  Above photo is taken in Taiwan in May, 2010 during a workshop organised by FABC.  I attended his talks several times.  He has special talent to explain extremely difficult matter in easiest language. Congratulations, Archbishop-elect Tagle.
