Transitional Papacy--NOT

Vatian Insider at La Stampa

It is turning into a foundational kingdom, created by someone who seeks to work silently, persistently and deeply.[...]
Benedict XVI is adamant that the strength - and weakness - of the Church is found first and foremost in the dioceses, in local Churches.... He studies every dossier prepared for the three candidates [for bishop] in each diocese, he examines the course of studies and professional experience of potential future bishops and finally takes a decision. Indeed, he often asks for other candidates to be presented to him if he is not satisfied by the individuals who have been shortlisted. It is a tedious and not particularly glamorous task, but one for which the Church of the next few decades will be very grateful to him.
