A Woman Bishop in Cuba --
Via Yahoo! News

The Rev. Nerva Cot Aguilera was named suffragan bishop on Sunday during a service in the Cuban city of Matanzas, said Robert Williams, director of communications for the U.S.-based Episcopal Church.

'Her appointment is a wonderful reminder that in some nations, leadership is primarily about gifts for service and not about gender,' said U.S. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who took office in November as the first woman to lead the church."

Two questions.

What is the proper form of address for a female Episcopalian bishop?

Did Cuba exert any pressure on the choice of bishop in the same way that communist China tries to control Catholic episcopal appointments?
