I was anticipating this 4 months ago!
Remember I was the ONLY person who identified ‘Pope Francis’ as a possible pope,
IN PRINT, ahead of his election.
I even got the November 19, 2016 date right.
Not a given, BUT Pope Francis opting for this November 19, 2016 cardinal creating consistory CERTAINLY increases the likelihood that Pope Francis may consider resigning/retiring/abdicating once he turns turns 80 on December 17, 2016.
He has openly talked about this possibility.
That he is TOPPING up the cardinal electors to the MAXIMUM 120 (legally) permitted is significant.
