The Herald reports that Cardinal O'Brien, Archbishop Conti and Bishop Moran will hang up their mitres in the next wee while.

It's a straight fight between the good guys:

Contenders for the soon-to-be-vacant posts include Monsignor Gerard Tartalgia, brother of the Bishop of Paisley, Monsignor Peter Magee, Fr John Keenan and Fr Patrick Burke, all very broadly seen as more orthodox, intellectual and closer to the teachings of Pope Benedict.

and the, *ahem*, rest, apparently

Others include Monsignor Peter Smith, Fr Paul Conroy and Fr Gero McLoughlin, generally seen as more representative of modernist face of the Church.

Modernist? Time to bring The Oath, methinks.....

No surprises that the list is very Glasgow-centric!

Well lets hope Mgr Tartaglia is more orthodox than his Brother. Who consistantly refuses Mass in the EF to be celebrated in Paisley diocese.

You say Glasgow-centric like that's a bad thing ;-)

Anon, that's disappointing to hear.

Fr Patrick Burke is also a Monsignor as is Fr Paul Conroy.

Don't expect the Herald to be accurate re matters Catholic, but I should have spotted that.
