Vatican moving quickly to find successor for Ireland's embattled Cardinal Brady?

Catholic World News - May 09, 2012

The Vatican is likely to move quickly to appoint a coadjutor who will succeed Cardinal Sean Brady of Armagh, the Primate of All Ireland, the Irish Catholic reports.

Citing informed Vatican sources, the Irish Catholic says that the Vatican is actively assessing candidates who could replace Cardinal Brady. Although the cardinal has insisted that he will not bow to the public pressure for his resignation, he has asked the Vatican to appoint another bishop to assist him. Vatican officials have reportedly concluded that Cardinal Brady will need a replacement soon.
