Kurtz calls

Another interesting note from the Blogosphere:
Here's some predictions from the blog "God Spede ye Plough" on Archbishop Kurtz first 100 days as the Archbishop of Louisville:

So...I predict that Archbishop Kurtz will, before the First Sunday of Advent, in no particular order:

1.) Appoint a priest or religious as the new Chancellor and a layperson as the new Chief Administrative Officer,
2.) Have one or more priests granted the title "Monsignor," something never done in the Kelly years,
3.) Issue a Pastoral Letter to the Archdiocese on one subject or another,
4.) Appoint a new Superintendent of Schools,
5.) Begin talks with his Alma Mater (St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia) to start sending Louisville seminarians there,
6.) Set up a personal blog in the manner of Cardinal O'Malley in Boston,
7.) Plan a Eucharistic Procession through the streets of Louisville,
8.) Assume greater oversight of Spalding U. and Bellarmine U., requiring some of their teachers to get a Mandatum (permision to teach) from his office,
9.) Appoint a new Director of the Permanent Diaconate Program, and
10.) Propose a major event in Louisville's West End to promote the faith and support economic/civil rights.
