Cardinal Hoyos likely to step down before Easter

Reactions - Pope Benedict Begins Vatican Shakeup:

Newsmax has learned that one cardinal, Castrillon Hoyos, will be asked to step down before Easter. The 79 year-old Colombian cardinal was responsible for pushing through the lifting of the excommunications of the four breakaway bishops. Sources say the commission he heads will probably be merged with the Vatican’s Congregation for Divine Worship in the coming months.

Cathcon also predicts the departure of Cardinal Re- a more conservative figure is needed to end the centripetal tendencies of some Bishops' Conferences. Expect a document on the role and status of these conferences, to which the Pope gives no theological status, unlike their members.
