Bishop Elect Rivituso is a worthy candidate as far as I know. Louis XV said it best. "Apresmoiledeluge" (Apres Moi Le Deluge) is what is waiting around the corner for the Catholic Church. Actually, Francis is laying the groundwork for a new Church to take over when this one falters. Malachi Martin who died in 1999 details the blueprint as a former Jesuit. John Paul II appeared to follow the Gospel with a "top down" Church based on Scripture. Francis is using the Teilhard de Chardin evolutionary Jesuit model of a "bottom up" Church using communes to replace the concept of the parish. You don't have to be hit in the head with a two by four to see that the priesthood is faltering. John Paul would say to marshal on with tiny numbers. Francis is stating that the priesthood must be extended into other shapes and forms.
