To the Catholic Sentinel:

We now have four bishops in the Archdiocese of Portland, two active and two retired. All live in the northern part of the Archdiocese. We sheep in the southern part would love to see a shepherd among us.

How marvelous it would be to see Bishop Peter Smith as pastor of one of the southern sphere parishes and resident among us. Certainly, the pastoral effect would be the most important result. The bishops would not have to keep running back and forth for confirmations and other important events.
