Mgr Stephen Robson was ordained auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh on June 9 at St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh.

During the homily at the ordination Mass, Cardinal Keith O’Brien of St Andrews and Edinburgh said: “I myself have known our soon-to-be Bishop Stephen for some 35 years and he knows me equally well.

“Some of you here today have known him for a longer time – and it must be a great joy for our new bishop to have both his parents here with him today for this ordination.

“I do commend him to you.”

    “Consecrates”, not “ordained”.

    A man can only be ordained once – as a priest. Although a Bishop’s consecration is not a separate Sacrament, in the Catholic Church we say he has been consecrated.

     Exactly right! Priests are ordained. Bishops are consecrated.
