Bishop Daniel Flores of Brownsville, Texas, has been named to a small committee planning the Vatican’s October assembly for the Synod on Synodality.
Bishop Flores, 61, is one of three bishops on the preparatory commission, which also includes three priests and a religious sister.
The committee was put together by Cardinal Mario Grech, secretary-general of the Synod of Bishops, who will also oversee its work.
Bishop Flores was installed as bishop of the Diocese of Brownsville in early 2010, after just over three years as an auxiliary bishop of Detroit.
Born in Texas, he was ordained a Catholic priest for the Diocese of Corpus Christi in 1988. In 2000, he received a doctorate in theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome.
The bishop, who has both Mexican and American roots, frequently posts in both English and Spanish on his popular Twitter account, where his profile name is “Amigo de Frodo.”
