The Emerging Role of the Bishop

Bishops are recognized as people who have the Holy Spirit inside of them. In the early church they presided over Sunday liturgy, preached, baptized and forgave sins. Another Role of bishops was the episcopal synods, which where forums where bishops would discuss problems and how to solve them within the church.
The Second Vatican Council reemphasized the bishop's Role of preaching and teaching while adding a new role: they were each in charge of their own diocese, not just watching over it for the pope. This created a feel of a college of bishops, working together to fulfill christ's mission. This can be called the doctrine of episcopal collegiality.
The Archdiocese of Miami is a collection of parishes in south Florida. It is run by the archbishop Thomas Wenski and his auxiliary bishop Peter Baldlcchino. The Archbishop and his assistant are in charge of running the parishes, distributing the funds, and choosing the priests for that area.
