Yet Another San Fran Update

We were hesitant to post this info for several reasons, but we've heard it now so often that its goin' up. Archbishop James Harvey, presently Prefect of the Papal Household and frequent sidekick of Pope Benedict, has a very good chance of being named the next archbishop of San Francisco. We have also heard, from several sources, that the announcement (whoever it may be) is expected "within days."

We think Harvey would be a better fit in Washington, DC. He has an impeccable diplomatic and administrative background which would serve him well, but Benedict may think such gifts would be better used in San Fran. It's really anyone's guess. There's been so much posteuring by California bishops (Brown, Walsh, Niederauer). . . it reminds us of the last song while playing musical chairs at a gradeschool dance. . . Quick, only one chair left! Wonder if dancin' is on tonight's Levada farewell dinner/gala's menu?

As a clergyman in the Diocese of Salt Lake City, I believe I can state that George Niederauer is not interested in San Francisco. He loves Salt Lake City, and -- not to be taken lightly -- he's already 70. It's going to take more than five years to clean up that mess in San Francisco, agreed?

An addendum to my last comment: Niederauer would be the perfect man for San Francisco. He's a total urbanite, well-read, very cultured, and ORTHODOX, despite what others may think. I really believe his age is the one big negative keeping him from serious consideration. Now, as regards James Harvey: do we really want a diplomat in San Francisco? It seems to me that a man like Chaput would be the ideal man for the job, someone who's not afraid to call it like he sees it, and -- bless him -- is strong enough to take the heat!

The naming of Fr. Fessio is indeed a dream. And I intend to keep dreaming.

It's the right thing to do.

Don't forget - Bill and Roger owe Danny Walsh BIG TIME for cleaning up that toxic waste site commonly known as the Diocese of Santa Rosa and running cover for their horny classmate from Camarillo.

Of course, coming from SF, Danny knows where all the bodies are buried and will keep everything hidden from public view just like a corpse rotting away in a crypt at Holy Cross.

He's just the kind of guy Rome (especially the newly annointed prefect of CDF) needs here in the City by the Bay.

If you have your finger on "the pulse of all things papal", what about The Pope's Cologne ??

"...a fresh new fragrance from the past" soon to return to the Vatican after 150 years !!!
