Bishop not a mere governor or bureaucrat - Pope Benedict
VATICAN CITY, September 13, 2010 --
Pope Benedict 120 recently appointed bishop gathered from around the world for an annual congress sponsored by the Congregation for Bishops, "The ministry of the bishop -- who is not a mere governor or bureaucrat, or a simple moderator or organizer of diocesan life -- is part of a profound perspective that is not simply human, administrative or sociological, but a perspective of faith. It is paternity and fraternity in Christ that enable the bishop to create a climate of trust, acceptance and affection, but also of frankness and justice."
