Time Marches On

And not a moment too soon either.

From Sunday's L.A.Times:

Headline: "Aging of Catholic bishops could lead to rebirth"

With Los Angeles Cardinal Roger Mahony prominently among them, many of the nation's senior Roman Catholic bishops are nearing mandatory retirement, offering the Vatican a significant opportunity to reshape the American church.


The Times is obsessed with race. But does mention that

Church experts say Benedict's recent appointments suggest that he is concerned more with orthodoxy than ethnicity and with putting a positive public face on the church.


"Hope and change", indeed.
