Cardinal Mahony's Successor

Who will it be?

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles said Thursday a search is under way for a successor to Cardinal Roger Mahony, who has spent 25 years as the spiritual leader of the nation's largest diocese and presided over a record-breaking clergy abuse settlement.

Does it even matter?

It's hard to imagine someone farther off the reservation. Whether it's the above-mentioned handling of the abuse scandal, his complete lack of reverence for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, or his incredibly bizarre views on the priest shortage, I can't say that I'll be sad to see him go.

Pray for the Holy Father in appointing his replacement.
