I have arrived this afternoon in a very foggy Toowoomba.   Tomorrow morning is the consecration of Monsignor Robert McGuckin as the sixth bishop of Toowoomba.

The first time I visited Toowoomba was in my first week in the seminary, in February 1993.   On that occasion we journeyed up the Range for the episcopal consecration of Bishop William Morris.

Please say a prayer for Monsignor McGuckin, and also the priests, religious and laity of Toowoomba.  A new bishop is always a new beginning, of sorts, for a dicoese.
