Rorate Caeli is reporting that Cardinal Ouellet, archbishop of Quebec, is likely to be the new Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops. Mixed feelings on this: obviously an excellent choice, but sadness at the loss at the local level.
(Edit: on second thought, this is still in the rumor stage. Having not kept up with Catholic news, both Cardinal Pell or Cardinal Oullet would be a good choice. Given the rumor stage, perhaps I should just take the post down, but I think I’ll leave it up and see what happens.)
