Pope Names Bishop for Mexican Industrial City

VATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Rogelio Cabrera Lopez bishop of the northern Mexican city of Monterrey, the Vatican said Wednesday.

The 61-year-old Cabrera Lopez, who had been serving as archbishop of Tuxtla-Gutierrez, was born in Santa Catalina, a city in Guanajuato state.

The prelate studied philosophy and theology at the seminary in Queretaro, and he received degrees in theology and sacred scriptures from the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Pontifical Biblical Institute, respectively, in Rome.

He was ordained in 1978 and appointed bishop of Tacambaro in 1996, the Vatican said.

Cabrera Lopez was transferred to the diocese of Tapachula in 2001 and was named bishop of Tuxtla Gutierrez in 2004.

After the creation of the Ecclesiastical Province of Chiapas on Nov. 25, 2006, Tuxtla Gutierrez was elevated to the status of a metropolitan seat and Cabrera Lopez was named archbishop.

He was elected vice president of the Mexican Bishops Conference in 2009. EFE
