Fr. Fessio's rise and rise
Interesting article today in the UK's Catholic online journal the Tablet, on Fr. Joseph Fessio, SJ. Fr. Fessio's amazingly Providential life, as a standard bearer of orthodoxy in the United States, is a well known figure to many of us, even those of us who have never heard his name. He is both founder and editor-in-chief of Ignatius Press (which publishes all of now-Pope Benedict's works among hundreds of other titles) as well as provost of Ave Maria University in Florida.
The rumor mill has been rumbling about Fr. Fessio's name being considered for the soon-to-be-vacant San Francisco See (as Archbishop Levada is moving to take over Ratzinger's former position at the CDF in September)... Only time will tell, but that's sure going to be an interesting appointment when it comes, no matter who gets it!
