New Auxiliaries for Melbourne

Perhaps to mark the Feast (in the New Calendar) of that great liturgical pope, St Pius V, the Holy See announced today the creation of two new Melbourne auxiliaries: the Salesian Timothy Costelloe and Mgr Peter Elliott. The latter will be known to many readers - especially priests and MCs - as the author of Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite and Ceremonies of the Liturgical Year, a sort of novus ordo Fortescue published by Ignatius Press.

His elevation means that the Australian Bishops' Conference not only has a good liturgist amongst its number but also, in addition to Cardinal Pell and Bishop Anthony Fisher, O.P., another Oxford graduate. Elliott studied theology amidst the 'dreaming spires,' during which time he was received into the Church.

Ad multos annos to the new titular bishop-elect of Manaccenser (a titular see which became vacant just a few weeks ago with the death of the Westminster Auxiliary, James O'Brien)!
