An Intriguing Development...

...I noticed, over on Paddy Power, that Fr. Tim Finigan has entered the field for the Westminster Sweepstakes...

...and this late runner has pipped Cardinal Pell, entering in at 10-1.

Sorry as we in Blackfen would be to lose him, (and recalling a comment a while back on Fr. Z's blog about the appearance of the words "Mene, mene, tekel and parsin" on every episcopal dining-room wall), I think that "Timothy Cardinal Finigan" has a certain ring to it...

It certainly does. And it could take the Church into a new era in England.

How cool would that be?!

PRiest to cardinal in a heartbeat. It would help if it were the middle ages and he was the pope's nephew!

Ok, so who's taking odds on which name he'll take on after the Conclave? ;)

Certainly, Fr. Finigan would probably the first Cardinal to re-instate the ferriuoluo and galero.
