Rumor Mill: Pope to Make Expected Appointment

The Catholic internet world is abuzz that Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments will be named Archbishop of Colombo, Sri Lanka. This is wonderful news for catholics there and a terrible loss for the CDWDS. Archbishop Ranjith is another in the curia who is very sympathetic to the traditions and customs of Holy Mother Church and has his eyes zeroed in on the excess of the liturgical reform. Colombo was a See that had a Cardinal once upon a time, and that is also the "buzz", that the Holy Father in this move is looking to stack the deck further for the conclave to elect his successor.
