Can bi-ritual priests become bishops?

Full Question

Can bi-ritual priests become bishops?

Answer

Yes, the Holy See can appoint any priest it wishes to the episcopacy for any rite it chooses. Ordinarily though, it appoints a bishop for the rite to which the new bishop has always belonged. Bi-ritual priests are priests who have been given permission to celebrate the liturgy in more than one rite. The priests themselves belong to only one rite.
