Hat-tip to the Man with Black Hat, for this news clip out of ABC News which talks about some sweeping changes forthcoming by Pope Benedict, including new bishop appointments in key dioceses. Here is an excerpt:
Key appointments are expected in New York, Baltimore and Detroit, where cardinals have reached retirement age 75. And retirements or appointments are likely in at least seven other dioceses and archdioceses: Seattle; Minneapolis-St. Paul; Pittsburgh; New Orleans; Louisville, Ky.; Omaha, Neb.; and Mobile, Ala.
