    Father Giertych is the theologian to the Papal Household. OK, let's see here, as I look at my Church Program: we've got Archbishop Levada as the lead-off batter over at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Cardinal Arinze would be batting second at the Congregation for Divine Worship. Father Giertych is batting third. Now I pray that Pope Benedict XVI makes the case for you, Diogenes, to be batting fourth, in the clean-up position, driving everyone Home!

    "In practice-- particularly when working with a theologian as accomplished as Pope Benedict-- the staff theologian helps with citations and references, and serves as a sounding board for the Pope's theological ideas." Rubenstein may have had somebody to keep his sheet music in order and polish the piano occasionally.
