Cardinal Ouellet sees plans for change under Pope Francis
CWN - March 21, 2013
Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, told a Canadian interviewer that he has “very concrete” directions from Pope Francis, and looks forward to carrying them out.
Cardinal Ouellet declined to say what the Pope had asked of him. But he indicated that the directions involved the work of his Congregation, and he inferred that the Pope intends to retain him in his current post at the Vatican.
The Canadian prelate, who was widely regarded as one of the leading papabili entering the conclave, also spoke about his relief that he was not elected.
