Bishop Malcolm McMahon Liverpool bound?

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.

I too have known +Malcolm for some time through the Knights of St Columba when I served as a Supreme Director & he was Spiritual Advisor. We served together on a committee which regularly met at Bishop's House in Nottingham.
A great choice who will be a great asset to the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
