A Promotion For Archbishop Ranjith?

Archbishop Ranjith has had some pretty bold statements lately, especially about the liturgy. Most folks know his opinion on communion in the hand, and we've detailed his other ideas here. Now, Rorate has posted a report from the Union of Catholic Asia News that he might be up for a red hat.

This would be great for more than just the above reasons. His comments there are great, but they are more powerful coming from a guy from Sri Lanka. A lot of the liturgical nonsense I've heard comes from people who think the Mass needs to be a free-for-all so that people from different cultures can change it the way they want so they can "fit in" better. A guy like +Ranjith taking the opposing view is a blow to that perspective.
