Vehige: This Is A Test

As of yesterday, April 27, 2010, the Dioceses of Dallas has two new auxiliary bishops. Don’t know what that is? Jump on over to Bishop Kevin Farrell’s blog to find out.

Today, the Dallas Morning News reported on Bishop Seitz’s and Bishop Deshotel’s ordination. In the article, which you can read here, staff writer Scott Farwell writes: “Catholics believe bishops are inspired descendants of Peter, one of Jesus’ original 12 apostles.”

I’d planned to write a piece on where that statement goes wrong. But then I decided I’d rather do something else.

So consider this a test -- a test of your understanding of Catholic ecclesiology.

Mr. Farwell makes three mistakes in the above statement. Two of them are quite blatant, the third is more technical.

Can you spot them?
