Reverting to Tradition

For Beatifications…

From Catholic News Agency:

“In his efforts to make events at the Vatican less “Pope-centered”, Pope Benedict XVI has decided that he will not preside at beatifications, reported the Honolulu Advertiser.

In effect, the Vatican is returning to the tradition of having cardinals–not the Pope–preside over beatifications.

The news came in relation to the beatification of American Mother Marianne Cope, which was rescheduled by the Vatican to May 15.”
