So, I noticed the post over at Blogging the Catholic Church in the British Isles about the potential candidates for the next Archbishop of Westminster. Kind of interesting, but I've only heard of about six of the people on the list.
I'm not sure what I think about speculating on things like this. I followed all the stuff about the election of the Pope last year, and it wasn't an especially enriching process - more like depressing. When BXI was announced, the public response seemed to be based on his reputation in his previous post. My individual response certainly was. But I really liked his sermons at World Youth Day. And the more I read what he writes and says, the more I appreciate it (even though it is hard work).
