The announcement came as a shock to the faithful of Harrisburg that their beloved Bishop has been chosen to lead the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend. The Bishop has been out-spoken on various topics pertinent to Catholic teaching. Most recently, the Notre Dame honoring President Obama at this past summer's commencement ceremony. Rhoads now shepherds the diocese that is home to ND. Could this be the Holy Father's hand being played on the topic? Our prayers are with Bishop Rhoads, and the dioceses of Harrisburg & Fort-Wayne-South Bend.
