"The Priority Isn't Sending a 'Message,' But a Bishop" – Chicago Meets The New Boss

As the morning began at the "House of 19 Chimneys," the moment was without precedent: the incoming archbishop of Chicago riding with his predecessor to the Appointment Day rollout.

Having just wrapped, via the local NBC affiliate, below is fullvideo of the long, utterly fascinating presser at Quigley:

8.30am CT – To those just getting up, good morning... and whatta day.

Again, the Chicago presser introducing Archbishop-elect Blase Cupich to the nation's third-largest diocese begins at 9.30 Oprah time (10.30 ET/7.30 Pacific, 1630 Rome). You'll find the livestream here then, and on-demand playback afterward.

In the meantime, Page Three – either directly here or down your right sidebar – is likewise in full "Special Edition" mode, so have at it.
