By BBN Staff: The Vatican is seeking someone to succeed Bishop Dorick Wright as he continues to ail.
In an interview with the media before his meeting with the Prime Minister, the Papal Nuncio told the media “Removal is not the word. Bishop Dorrick is still our Bishop, he is sick and the human wisdom teaches us to look after our sick, to look after our old people, to look after the children. The Vatican is now looking seriously into the matter to see how to arrange the succession and after Dorrick we can come in and take his place, we are working on that.”
The Papal Nuncio explained to the media that it has to do with the illness because normally they would stand down at age 75 but Bishop Wright is 71.
He stated “It is also charitable when a Bishop is sick we look seriously at the sickness and all of this time we have been looking at that. We give priority to condition of the Bishop and then that is why the auxiliary Bishop has been appointed to help the sick Bishop and together to run the diocese, that is the Catholic Church.”
