The Pauline Ordination Conspiracy?
Thanks to a tip, it can be reported that the prelates are far from alone in sharing the day. No, it's not a conspiracy -- a group of 359 priests ordained together in Rome, by the Pope, to commemorate a Holy Year is bound to produce a bevy of bishops.
Thirty-two years on, it's done that and then some.
Provost is but the latest of his ordination class to be raised to the fullness of the priesthood. Alongside Burke, others from its number include Cardinal Josip Bozanic of Zagreb, Archbishops James Harvey, the prefect of the Papal Household; Michael Miller CSB, secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education, and the currently-omnipresent Malcolm Ranjith, the secretary of CDW. Bishops Michael Cote of Norwich, Patrick Zurek, auxiliary of San Antonio, and a host of others from Latin America, Asia and Africa round out the list, which a quick Catholic-Hierarchy.org check turns up.
