Cardinal Bertone ordains new Peruvian bishop as part of Eucharistic congress

.- As part of the 9th National Eucharistic Congress taking place in the city of Chimbote, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State, presided over the ordination of Bishop Gaetano Galbusera, SDB, the new coadjutor bishop of the Apostolic Vicariate of Pucallpa.

The ordination took place in the new Cathedral of Chimbote, which was inaugurated during the Congress.  Bishop Galbusera was accompanied by his brothers in the episcopate, priests, religious and numerous members of the Salesians, of which he is a member.

During his homily, Cardinal Bertone called the ordination a “great event, which is framed in a context of a spirituality, as is the National Eucharistic Congress, in which the community gathers around the Eucharist and mediates on the love of Christ.”

“As a testimony of the love of God, providence today grants a special gift to the Church in Peru, a new pastor.  Let us pray for him, that the Lord will grant him the necessary graces, that he may carry out firmly the mission the Lord has entrusted to him,” the cardinal said.

Bishop Galbusera was appointed by Benedict XVI on July 18.  Previously he was rector of the Major Seminary of Pumallucay in the Prelature of Huari.
