Msgr Kagan will be a good bishop. He has been an office jockey all of his priesthood. He has a good sense of Church and ministry.

Whenever the Vatican "moves" a priest, you have to be watchful of your children and belongings. The Catholic Church has a long legacy of murder, child rape and theft, so Bismark better look into this guy's past.

I think Msgr Kagan was simply made the Bishop of the Diocese of Bismark. I am not sure about the murder rape, conspiracy, extortion, et al,

It sounds as if he is very well educated. But as noted he has been in Diocesan offices most of his life. I don't know what kind of pastor he has been during these last few years. ad Mutos Annos

"INDICTED BISHOP PLANS TO CONTINUE LEADING DIOCESE'

Kansas City, MO.; The first Roman Catholic bishop criminally charged with failure to report suspected child abuse will stay on the job. Bishop Robert Finn of the Missouri Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph acknowledged in May that he waited five months to tell police about images of alleged child porn found on the Rev. Shawn Ratigan's computer.
The Vatican says it won't intervene. A national child safety panel that monitors bishops won't comment. No other American bishops have remarked on the case. Finn has pleaded not guilty. The Associated Press, 10-20-11

And what does this have to do with Msgr Kagan and the Bismark, ND diocese?

Well, I still hope that he Msgr Kagan does well in Bismark. It has probably already snowed there. He will miss the warm winters of northern Illinois real soon.
