Cardinal Pell: News

According to La cigüeña de la torre, Cardinal Pell has been named President of the Synod of Bishops, in the place of Cardinal Gracias who is "unable to attend". (Is he ill? Does the persecution of Indian Catholics make his absence impossible?) The Pope obviously enjoyed his trip to Australia: is he softening the Cardinal up for something nearer Rome?

Look at that, Ttony - I've found your blog.

I've no idea what's going on with George as president of the synod. I'm not even aware of George's linguistic talents. Anyone know what his Italian/latin/german/spanish/french is like?

I understand his Latin and Italian are good, and his English is passable, he having spent time over here :-)

What we pray for is the start of his gradual detachment from your shores in view of the magnetic attraction to ours!
