                                         A Distinction for the de Bovet line 

Since my previous post regarding the de Bovet line, one member has resigned as ordinary of his diocese and another will be created a cardinal in the consistory of 30 September 2023.

 Here are the seven living members of this line:

 Bishop Sebastian Francis of Penang, to be created a cardinal on 30 September 2023.

Archbishop emeritus Murphy Nicholas Xavier Pakiam of Kuala Lumpur

Bishop emeritus Antony Selvanayagam of Penang

Bishop emeritus Petrus Boddeng Timang of Banjarmasin

Bishop John Baptist Tseng Chien-tsi, titular bishop of Sululos and former Auxiliary Bishop of Hwalien

Bishop Paul He Zeqing of Wanxian*

Bishop Peter Luo Xuegang of Yibin*


*These two bishops, although recognized by the Holy See, are not yet listed in the Annuario Pontificio.
