Episcopal Appointments for Melbourne!

Msgr Peter Elliott and Fr Timothy Costelloe sdb have been appointed by the Holy Father to receive the Episcopal consecration, the fullness of Holy Orders, for the Archdiocese of Melbourne. This is expected to occur at the Cathedral on the 15th June.

What can I possibly say about Msgr Elliott? Deo gratias! I have had the joyful privilege of studying under Father Costelloe, and I know that he is going to be an exceptional, and humble Shepherd for the Church of God. Father Costelloe's church was recently destroyed in an arson attack - and I thought of Bishop Polding, when his Cathedral burnt down on the anniversary of his Episcopal consecration. May Father Costelloe be consoled by his appointment, may he rejoice, and be conformed in the Holy Spirit. The Lord has blessed His Church in Melbourne.
