CitE* Watch: Cardinal Pell

This one’s a very interesting speculation: that Irish bookmakers rate Cardinal Pell as a 10-1 shot to take the Westminster see. Even among an episcopacy steeped in careerism, I find it hard to fathom moving a cardinal archbishop unless he were heading to Rome for some sort of escape.

Cardinal Law, when he was still in Boston, spoke of the bond of bishop and diocese as alike to marriage. I wonder how his starter “wife” and other such “spouses” like St Thomas VI, Fall River MA, and Palm Beach FL feel about that designation.
