Bishop: Pope shows he's pastoral

By Tony Staley
Compass Editor

The hallmarks of Pope Benedict XVI's papacy will be carrying on the work of his predecessor, an emphasis on education and his role as pastor.

That's the verdict of Green Bay Bp. David Zubik, who was in St. Peter's Square when the new pope was elected and presented to the world.

In a meeting with the press April 21 at Austin Straubel International Airport, Green Bay, after returning from Rome, Bp. Zubik said:

• "First of all, I think there's no question about it: He was Pope John Paul II's closest advisor. So you can know for sure that he will be continuing on the good work of Pope John Paul II." Bp. Zubik met the then Card. Joseph Ratzinger twice at the Vatican along with other bishops.   Full story ...
