Bishop of Longueuil is Cardinal Ouellet's Right Hand Man in Canada

Some time ago I blogged about Lionel Gendron, the new bishop of Longueuil, and the first Quebec bishop chosen by Cardinal Ouellet.

At the time, I was cautiously optimistic about this choice. He appears to be of the same pedigree as Cardinal Ouellet.

La Presse reports that Bishop Gendron will actively participate in nominating the bishops to fill the several vacancies that will be created in the coming years as a number of Quebec bishops will be forced to resign due to age.

I'm anxious to see if these nominees live up to the hype.

Fr. Raymond Gravel is worried, if that's any indication. :D
