    To accept his resignation, or not to accept it. I'll bet that was a grueling, heart-wrenching call for the Holy Pontiff of God to make. Now he can appoint someone with the sharpness of focus of an Archbishop Paglia or the sense of the zeitgeist of a Bishop Sorondo. We breathlessly await the Pontiff's decision.
