Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Rumor mills at it again...

This time around it's Archbishop Chaput from Denver, whom the scuttlebutt is speculating as a possible replacement for Cardinal McCarrick in Washington D.C. July 8th, McCarrick turns 75, when all bishops are required to offer their resignation.

I don't think this is likely though, McCarrick hasn't been there long enough, and will probably ask to stay on a few more years... but then again, maybe not. Denver would be very sad to lose Chaput, though!

Of course, this also reminds me of that small detail of the San Francisco see being vacant as of this September.... Hmmmm.

One thing's for sure -- now that Pope Benedict is here, and the episcopacy is already feeling the shuffling, bishop appointments have gotten a lot more interesting!

Now if only something can be done about Catholic LA LA Land and the Taj Mahoney.
