Pope appoints Bishop Leonard to succeed Cardinal Danneels

News received from VIS 3pm European time this afternoon.

Well, he's done it. No 'Wagner wobbles' this time. I wondered at the time whether he gave in over Fr Wagner because it wasn't worth having a fight over the appointment of an auxiliary, who would have had no power or influence to change things. More important appointments in Germany need to be carefull watched! And another reason for a Consistory fairly soon!

In the meantime God bless and strenghen our Holy Father, the Church in Belgium and the Archbishop-elect of Mechelin Brussels.
Deo gratias!
