Pope appoints new Nuncio in Ireland

Monsignor Charles Brown, appointed Apostolic Nuncio in Ireland
Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Monsignor Charles Brown to be the new Apostolic Nuncio in Ireland. He will be ordained Bishop in the near future. Monsignor Brown is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, currently working at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome.
As well as higher degrees in history and theology, Mons. Brown holds a doctorate in sacramental theology from the Pontifical Athenaeum Sant'Anselmo in Rome.
He was ordained a priest in 1989 and was a Curate in the Parish of Saint Brendan, the Bronx, New York until 1991. He has worked at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith since 1994. He became Chaplain to His Holiness and Monsignor in 2000. He has also been Adjunct Secretary to the International Theological Commission since 2009.
We pray that the Holy Spirit may guide the new Nuncio with wisdom as he sets out on his task of representing the Pope in Ireland.
