Handover, Accomplished

At Baltimore Noon this Thursday, the transition of leadership quietly took effect – Archbishop Joe Kurtz is now The President of the United States (Conference of Catholic Bishops), the 16th to hold the post since the body's modern formation in 1966.

And for those who missed it, there's likewise fullvid of Tuesday's post-election presser with the new top team: the Louisville prelate and his now Vice-President, Cardinal Dan DiNardo of Galveston-Houston.
