Thomas at American Papist was exactly right yesterday when he said that Bishop Carlson would be announced today as the new Archbishop of St. Louis.
St. Louis Catholic has some details on the Bishop and will be doing more analysis later.
American Papist has a couple of posts on the subject and no doubt will be providing more coverage especially with the press conference occurring latter on this morning.
The nicely revamped Archdiocese of Saint Louis website also has good information and you can follow the Archdiocese on Twitter.
Like Archbishop Burke who he succeeds he is also a canon lawyer and not a Bishop afraid to speak out about pro-abortion Catholic politicians. All evidence points to the fact that the people of St. Louis have got themselves another solid bishop.
