The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana IIIIIII [ Selection Continued from page I Bishop Shea will reach the age of 75 on Dec. 4; it is the age when he must submit his retire- ment request to the Holy See. Identifying candidates for the episcopacy is an ongoing pro- cess. The bishops of the In- dianapolis province meet regularly, usually every year, with Archbishop Edward T. O'Meara as chairman. Prior to the meeting, each bishop in the province may submit names of priests he considers to be qualified candidates for the episcopacy. These names are collected and sent out to all the got a negative vote," wrote questionnaires to any person or bishops of the province, who Father Reese. persons of his choosing -- try to learn all they can about .

The pro-nuncio sends the list of names to the president of the National Council of Catholic Bishops for evaluation. The pro-nuncio may send the candidate. An abstention does not harm an individual's chances of being selected, ac- cording to Father Thomas Reese, but "it would be very ex- ceptional to send a name that Plans progress for Bishop Shea's liturgy on Nov. 20 As plahs progress for a celebration honoring Bishop Francis R. Shea, Nov. 20, Catholics throughout southwestern Indiana are being reminded of the procedures adopted for the day, according to Father Mike Hamel, diocesan office of creative services.

The public is cordially invited to attend. usually priests, heads of religious orders and represen- tatives of the laity. The questionnaire has 14 areas: personal characteristics; human qualities; human, Chris- tian and priestly formation; behavior; cultural preparation; .orthodoxy; discipline; pastoral fitness and experience; leader- ship qualities; administrative skills; public esteem; a request for a judgment about the can- didate's suitability for the episcopacy; additonal com- ments; and names, addresses and 'qualifications of others who know the candidate well. With the responses from such questionnaires, and a response from the president of the NCCB, the Pro-Nuncio narrows the list to three (a ternus}, and sends the list to Rome with his preference. The pro-nuncio is not bound to make up his list from the list of names provided by the bishops of the province, nor is the pope bound to select from the list of three the pro-nuncio provides -- but in most case, wrote Father Reese, the process is as described.

Because of ex- perience or some other reason, it is possible that the next bishop might be from an area outside of the province or the region. The pro-nuncio sends the list of three to Rome, to the 32 member Congregation for Bishops. They may choose any of the three names on the list, or reject the ternus altogether. Following the meeting, the Car- dinal in charge of the Congrega- tion for Bishops presents the choice of the congregation and his own choice to the pope. The pope makes the final decision. The pope than informs the Congregation for Bishops; the congregation informs the pro nuncio. The pro nuncio con- tacts the nominee, who may ac- cept or refuse the position. If the nominee accepts the position, the pro-nuncio in- forms Rome; and a date is set for the announcement.
