Rhoades to Succeed D'Arcy

It was announced this morning that Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Harrisburg, PA will succeed Bishop John D'Arcy as prelate of the Diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend. This transition will effectively occur on January 13, 2010. At age 77, Bishop D'Arcy is 2 years beyond the standard retirement age.

Unknown at this time are:
1) who will succeed Rhoades as Bishop of Harrisburg
2) what this transition will portend in the matter of the various scandals of Notre Dame

If there are thoughts on these, particularly the latter, please comment on these. Thank you.
