Congrats, Dallas -- as expected, Pope Benedict has tapped Bishop Kevin Farrell to make a one-way trip to Texas.

...and Msgr Glen John Provost, 57, a pastor in the diocese of Lafayette, has been named bishop of Lake Charles, ending the US' longest diocesan vacancy.

In other news, the Vatican announced that "Sacramentum Caritatis" -- "The Sacrament of Love" -- Pope Benedict's long-awaited Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation from the 2005 gathering of the world's bishops on the Eucharist, will be released one week from today, 13 March.
