New Prague archbishop seen as transitional
May 18, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: On May 13, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Cardinal Dominik Duka, 79, as Archbishop of Prague (in Czechia, also known as the Czech Republic), and appointed Archbishop Jan Graubner of Olomouc, 73, as his successor.
“I think the important thing is that this choice is not really about making radical changes, it is more about continuity,” said Petr Kratochvíl, head of the Institute of International relations in Prague. Both prelates, he said, “belong to the same conservative wing which is very dominant among the Czech catholic hierarchy.”
