Today our San Antonio Archbishop was located – almost a day after taking off on the wrong path. The elderly bishop was found driving the wrong way down Interstate I-10 near Ozona. Early reports indicate he was confused.
I met Archbishop Flores on two occasions and have a lot of respect for what the man has accomplished (first Catholic TV station in the US, hosted Pope John Paul II, survived being held hostage, and did some pretty good things for his economically strapped constituents. He was forced into retirement by the mandatory 75 year age rule (why it applies to Arch-Bishops and not the Pope is unclear to me).
In any case, he is back, and safe.
Retired Archbishop Patrick Flores is back home safe.
News 4 was told the archbishop is feeling okay and has been resting most of the day after a very long night. The 78-year-old was missing more than 14 hours. He was found in Ozona, Texas, more than 200 miles west of San Antonio.
