    Today: A new bishop for Milwaukee?

    The buzz is growing that archdiocese of Milwaukee will be the next episcopal vacancy filled by Rome - it has been without an archbishop since its former Archbishop Timothy Dolan was moved to New York City.

    The local papers have been chattering about it for the last 24 hours, which is normally a sign. They are, however, mostly relying on Vatican rumor blog Whispers in the Loggia. Here are Rocco's picks:
    Bishops Gerald Kicanas of Tucson (currently vice-president of the US bishops), Blase Cupich of Rapid City, Jerome Listecki of LaCrosse and Milwaukee's administrator, Aux. Bishop William Callahan OFM Conv.
    I would disagree that Aux. Bp. Callahan is likely - that's what I'm hearing, at least. [update - I would also be surprised if it was Kicanas.]

    Other names that keep appearing on my shortlist are Bishops Robert Finn, Michael Jackels, Alexander Sample, and David Ricken.

    I'd put my money on Bishop Listecki of LaCrosse, but with so many names floating around, I'm still far from confident. We'll just have to see who the Holy Spirit has in mind.

    And in the meantime - have you heard anything?
