Rumor has it that Bishop Anthony Pilla of the Diocese of Cleveland is set to resign allegedly for health reasons.
I've attended many conferences in Cleveland and spoke at John Carroll University and have admired Bishop Pilla for some time now. He has given his diocese a strong sense of their baptismal call and has enabled lay people to work in close collaboration with a tired and overworked clergy. I have many friends who work for the diocese and have nothing but good words to say about this man.
I'm hoping that his resignation isn't true...but if it is I also hope that Pilla gets to hand pick a replacement for his seat or at least he is in on the conversation. He's been there for 25 years and knows the diocese better than anyone.
