Rumors fly. I am not entirely sure that this is well-informed, and it is more than second hand. However, it was reported in another entry:Robert Moynihan of Inside the Vatican, currently in Naples, Florida, confirmed last night at a Legatus meeting that his sources say that the Motu Proprio will be issued on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, Feb. 22.I knew that there was going to be a Legatus meeting in Florida because Bill Bennett mentioned on his radio program that he was going to be speaking.
As far as the "sources" are concerned….well… okay. I am not hearing much right now. 22 February seems to be an appropriate date.
But we have seen this before. Right?
My birthday is February 22nd.
As Fr. Z notes, this is only legend. So I guess we'll see.
I hope he does that though. Best birthday ever (if it happens). I'll drink some German beer in his honor.
