We already know that this Pope has centralized more authority in his office than his predecessors. We also know that though the Vatican has congregations (departments) in charge of various divisions of its operation, this Pope is a notorious micro-manager and often bypasses the very folks who are supposed to be responsible. We also know that his bent is to be somewhat fast and loose with practice even though he maintains the doctrine (on the surface anyway). We know that he is a fast talker and loves to speak off the cuff and to informal audiences, usually leaving them with a juicy tidbit. Now we know that this Pope may have an agenda. He will change the Roman Catholic Church less by writing than by handing out red caps. According to some who are close to the Pope (with an equal penchant for a soundbite), the Pope is going to retire as soon as he has staked the deck with cardinals who will ensure that the RC Church will not go back to the Benedict style and substance. I am not sure which is more interesting -- this revelation or the idea of two former and one active Pope at the same time!
