Another U.S. Opus Dei bishop

 |  NCR Today

All news services this morning are reporting that Monsignor John O Barres is Pope Benedict's choice to succeed retired Bishop Edward P. Cullen as bishop or Allentown, PA.

Barres has been chancellor of the Diocese of Wilmington, Del., since 2000.

Only a few have noted Barres, an Ivy League-educated theologian with a master's in business administration, is a graduate of Opus Dei's Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome.
