Bishop of Ecatepec… easy act to follow
With rogue Bishop Onésimo Cedepa Silva having managed to retire without the scandal of seeing him dragged off to the slammer (as was a very real possibility any number of times), the Diocese of Ecatepec probably will find Oscar Roberto Domínguez Couttolenc, a welcome change. While Bishop Cedepa was known for hanging with the rich and famous, and his “creative” financing (including, it appears, a weird pyramid scheme involving pre-need burial plots), Bishop Domínguez was the Bishop of Tlapa (Guerrero), the poorest Diocese in Mexico.
A former missionary priest in Kenya, Domínguez was his order’s financial director for a time, so one has to assume his fellow priests trust him with the collection box. Even if he has collaborated closely with Opus Dei in Guerrero, I’ll just take a wild stab in the dark and say the 56-year old native of Puebla is going to be a tremendous improvement over his predecessor.
