wanna start a rumor?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Apr 30, 2010

Hmmm. 

VATICAN CITY, 30 APR 2010 (VIS) - The Holy Father today received in audience Cardinal George Pell, archbishop of Sydney, Australia. 

What do you suppose they discussed? Cardinal Pell is the chairman of the Vox Clara committee, so maybe they were talking about the new English-language translation of the Roman Missal.

But they talked about that yesterday, didn't they? So maybe today they were talking about something else

 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The "else" link is saying the same thing as the "something" link. The Italian blog (dated 30 Jan 2010) is speculating that Pell is in "pole position" to assume the reigns of the Congregation for the Clergy.

    Adamah, you might not have noticed that those last two words of the post, "something" and "else", are different links. The very last link ("else") is to the italian article, but the link before it ("something") is to a Catholic Culture post from February, also by Phil Lawler, which will explain what he speculating about. Note to Catholic Culture: Is there some way to make it more clear when contiguous words have separate links? Perhaps with separated underlining?

    Alright, I went to that last link but it was in Italien. Can someone shed some light on this for me?
