Catholic Word of the Week (January 30, 2012)
Diocese: The territory or churches subject to a bishop. If a bishop has been assigned to a diocese (some have not) then he is responsible for his diocese in a special way. Still, Christus Dominus is quick to point out that:
"As legitimate successors of the Apostles and members of the episcopal college, bishops should realize that they are bound together and should manifest a concern for all the churches. For by divine institution and the rule of the apostolic office each one together with all the other bishops is responsible for the Church."
