Hats

It will be interesting to see if dear Archbishop Forte (who so entertainingly bungled the plotted liberal take-over of the Synod) or Archbishop Fernandez (a protege of the the Holy Father's, who explained the Pope's words about frank discussion as meaning "we needn't be afraid of Mueller coming after us") gets promotion in the coming days. Not a 'snowball's chance', I would say.

Personally, I'm putting all my shirts on Cardinals' hats for Mgr Newton, our Ordinary, and Bishop Egan, in whose diocese I geographically reside ... a very fine pair of prelates, quibus nulli meliores.

A fine pair of prelates indeed, but I wouldn't put my shirt on the chance unless I was determined to lose it.

Utinam!

Forte is still bareheaded!

Yes, it's great to have Bishop Egan as our Ordinary, although there's been a fair amount of teeth-gnashing among those who prospered during his predecessor's reign.

At least "cardinal" is more patrimonial than "monsignor".
