fresh rumor on the motu proprio
Actually this qualifies as something more than a rumor...
The Rorate Caeli blog brings news from a solid Italian source, saying that the document and an accompanying letter from Pope Benedict have been completed and signed, and will be released before the Pope takes his vacation in early July.
The Italian report goes so far as to name three Vatican officials who will reportedly introduce the motu proprio at a press conference in Rome: Cardinals Arinze, Castrillon Hoyos, and Herranz.
Follow-up note: With the addition of new reports from Rome, I'm now upgrading this "rumor" to the status of a news story.
