Rumor Has It

Veteran churchwatcher Rocco Palmo points to rumors regarding a possible Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.  Msgr. Charles Brown, well-known CDF official, may wind up the nuncio to Ireland. That’s rumor. Writes Palmo, “Educated at Notre Dame and Oxford, the low-key, savvy Brown — indeed, universally known as “Charlie” — would prove an unmistakable signal of the degree to which Benedict means business both in shaking up Irish Catholicism and more forthright dealings with the state.”

Palmo speculates, of course, but his speculation is often more reliable than others’ reporting. We’ll just have to see if this rumor wins the apple pie or turns out to be a turkey. Stay tuned.

The rest is here.
