The answer is that only 1 remains.
That ordinary is:
- Bishop Gilbert Guillaume Marie-Jean Aubry of Saint-Denis-de-La Réunion
- Named 20 Nov 1975 by Pope Paul VI
- Born 10 May 1942
- Will turn 79 years old in a bit over a month.
|Year||Month||Bishops||Months from previous|
For a variety of reasons, including Covid-19, the number of bishops that have died this year is at a record high.
The previous record was in 2017 with 168 deaths (note that 4 of those were never bishops: a former Abbot; an Abbot Emeritus; and two Prefect Apostolic Emeritus).
The next closest was last year (2019) with 164 deaths (note that 2 of those were never bishops: an Abbot Emeritus and a Prefect Apostolic Emeritus)
Currently for 2020, the count stands at 179 and all of those were bishops.
May they all rest in peace.
