Westminster Sweepstakes Round Two...

Methinks Ttony spends far too much time checking out Paddy Power's website... Be that as it may, he helpfully informs us that their book on the next Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster has been re-opened. You can check it out HERE. Archbishop Vincent Nichols is top of the list at 2-1, and Cardinal Pell's odds have lengthened to 12-1, joint with Fr. Aidan Nichols, Bishop Arthur Roche and Bishop Peter Smith. Paddy Power obviously have not been keeping up with the blogosphere, or Fr. Nichols' odds might be quite a bit shorter... though I see that Dom Hugh Gilbert has snuck in at number 2 with odds of 4-1...

No sign of Fathers Blake or Finigan...

The Archbishop of the Diocese in which I reside, the favourite? Wow, bet he's thrilled, never one to shirk publicity - even the priests complain that his photograph appears 'too much' in and around the diocese...perhaps it was all a part of his master plan! LOL!

There's a lot of talk about Abbot Hugh Gilbert about... rumour has it that he would accept the post, despite talk to the contrary, because -- again the grape-vine says -- he turned down Aberdeen last time, but would now take Westminster out of obedience. You know, like first time it might be fluke, second time it has to be serious...

...but at the end of the day we're not him. I think we should somehow snaffle Cardinal Pell anyway, even if not as Abp. of Westminster. Can't we just "borrow" him anyway to kick Church and country in to touch?
