more consistory speculation

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Aug 23, 2010

Malta Independent Online has leapt into the speculation game with a prediction that the leading prelate of the little island nation, Archbishop Paul Cremona, will be measured for a red hat by the end of this year. “Although there were no formal announcements, the speculation is rife,” the Maltese report intoned.

Leaving aside the prospects for Archbishop Cremona—and for every other candidate whose name is being tossed around—it’s undeniably true the “the speculation is rife.” Look for an announcement in the fall, after Pope Benedict’s return to Rome. 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
