Pope Francis has named Springfield, Massachusetts Bishop Mitchell Rozanski as the next archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri.
"Jesus has entrusted to us, his church, to be his presence in our world, particularly here in the city and the surrounding areas of St. Louis. Jesus did not avoid any person or situation that was uncomfortable. He walked into those difficult circumstances bringing the healing presence of God. All of us stand in need of that healing presence." - Bishop Mitchell Rozanski
