Cardinal O'Brien = Gone

Cardinal O'Brien is resigning and will not attend the conclave.

I wonder if we'll see any more of these, especially now that said conclave will probably be taking place earlier than expected.

Pope Benedict XVI allows for the College of Cardinals to begin the Conclave before fifteen days have passed from the beginning of the period sede vacante, provided that all voting Cardinals are present. The modification also provides that the Conclave must begin no more than twenty days after the beginning of the sede vacante, even if all the electors are not present.

Onward we go.

I was listening to "Seize the Day" on the Catholic Channel (XM 129) this morning. Host Gus Lloyd said that this affair, for him at least, "does not pass the smell test". I tend to agree with him.
