Whispers in the Loggia say the Holy Father has asked Cardinal Cormac Murphy-o'Connor to stay on past 75. Now I know this could be only for an extra year or two and I know he isn't that bad, but why? Is there no one in the UK ready to take up the massive massive task of getting the church here back on track? Perhaps not -or perhaps there is, but not yet.
I confess to being a bit confused by this move.
Still-the Vatican does tend to behave much like an Ent Moot-so I will try and learn patience.
But I want it now.
