Cardinal Arinze Has Stepped Down

The Catholic Hierarchy News is reporting that he's retired and that Cardinal Canizares Llovera is taking over as prefect of the CDW.

I personally don't know anything about this guy, but Rocco Palma over at Whispers in the Loggia seems to think that he'll be a strongly traditional guy. Hey, he's already on the Ecclesia Dei Commission, so that has to be a good sign. Rocco's picture of the new prefect is freaking awesome, by the way.

In memory of Cardinal Arinze's reign as prefect, everyone should take a look at Redemptionis Sacramentum, probably his most well-known bit of work.
