The Rt. Rev. William H. Love, Bishop of Albany, has appealed for unity following news that his predecessor has entered into full communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
The Rt. Rev. Daniel Herzog retired as Bishop of Albany Jan. 31. Bishop Love said he learned of Bishop Herzog‚Äôs decision in a letter dated March 19 which he received upon his return from the spring retreat of the House of Bishops.
‚ÄúThe recent retirement and subsequent departure of both Bishop Dan [Herzog] and Bishop Dave [Bena] from The Episcopal Church can‚Äôt help but have a major impact on each of us and our diocese,‚Äù Bishop Love stated in a letter. ‚ÄúOne of my greatest concerns as your new bishop is that others in the diocese are also struggling with the current issues that threaten to divide the Church. Please know that I am here for you as we work through these issues.
‚ÄúAs your bishop and brother in Christ, I appreciate and give thanks to God for you and every member of our diocesan family. I need you as we move forward.‚Äù
