The New Patriarch of Venice

Cardinal Bagnasco (left) and Bishop Moraglia (right) 


It has been announced that Bishop Moraglia of the Ligurian see of La Spezia-Sarzana-Brugnato has been appointed to be the next Patriarch of Venice to replace Cardinal Scola. He is a very quiet unassuming but hard working Bishop During his four years as Bishop of La Spezia, Bishop Moraglia has presided over a rise in seminary numbers and championed devotional practices like perpetual Eucharistic adoration. 

He will be sorely missed.
