Bishop Malcolm McMahon, OP of the Diocese of Nottingham is the hot tip to be the new Archbishop of Liverpool. From my point of view, this is good news. I have known Bishop Malcolm for a number of years, he was kind to me in a time of need (plus, he makes a good cup of coffee!). He has a broad vision of the Church, which ministers to the charismatic as well as the Traditional (not that I necessarily see that there should be any boundary between those two!) For many on the Traditional side of things, his appointment would be good news as he actually celebrates (as a Bishop) the ancient Form of the Mass. I pray that he will act as a true father to this diocese and renew us in the Faith. We need a big man with a big heart for the job.
Keep an eye out for any announcements from Liverpool Cathedral tomorrow morning.
