Predictions: CDF Prefect

Although there are rumors floating out there that Americans Cardinal George of Chicago or Archbishop Levada of San Francisco will be appointed to Pope Benedict's old position of prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the vaticanisiti would like to set the record straight. Our inside sources tell us the job will most likely go to an Italian. Those with the best chances are Archbishop Angelo Amato (current secretary at the CDF and Ratzinger's former right-hand man) and Bishop Salvatore Fisichella (current auxiliary bishop of Rome and rector of the Pontifical Lateran University).

Ah, very clever thevaticanisti. Our sources will never be divulged. Your wily tricks, like Eve's apple, we will not partake of.

What abot Cardinal Caffara of Bologna? He's one kick ass moral theologian.

Like you, we, the Vaticanisti, are quite fond of Caffara. We feel it is our responsibility and distinct displeasure to correct one factual mistake in your posting, however. Unless there was a secret consistory in the last couple days, His Excellency, Carlo Caffara is the archbishop of Bologna, but not yet a Cardinal, though we hope and pray this will happen in the not-too-distant future. As we have explained in the past, accuracy is highly prized on this blog.

I like Cardinal Scola of Venice. I think he would make the best CDF head.
