Bishop-elect Peter Elliott

My mobile device came up trumps on Monday when I found that I could access the internet on the fly while in Rome. Looking as I often do at the Vatican News Service, I was delighted to see that Mgr Peter Elliott has been named as an auxiliary Bishop of Melbourne.

I met Mgr Elliott when I was a student in Rome and he was living at the Casa del Clero in the Via della Scrofa. At that time he was studying for a doctorate on marriage and the family. His book "What God has Joined" is an excellent study of the Theology of Marriage in the light of Pope John Paul's teaching.
