From Whispers in the Loggia, via American Papist comes the news that on Saturday:
"... B16 named the church's "chief justice" Archbishop Raymond Burke to the membership of the Congregation for Bishops, giving the 61 year-old prelate a seat at the dicastery's all-important Thursday Table, whose votes recommend prospective appointees to the Pope."
Tom Peters says:
"Any move that places Abp. Burke in a more prominent oversight role over the appointment of bishops in the United States is a good thing."
