A Better Day In Portugal. Maybe.

I'm throwing this one out for our regular reader and commenter Mark of the Vineyard.

Cardinal Policarpo has resigned, and the Holy Father has accepted said resignation. Here was a guy who basically sat on the sidelines while abortion was legalized in Portugal and who made scandalous comments about the dogma of Holy Orders being reserved to men (which led to a half-hearted retraction).

Bishop Manuel Jose Macario do Nascimento Clemente (hell of a name there) has been appointed as his successor. Let's pray for him that the dogmas of the Faith will always be preserved under his care of the land of Fatima.

Let's also pray that D. Clemente lives up to his namesake and actually allows Summorum Pontificum to be implemented in his diocese (something Policarpo backhandedly prohibited).
