Rottweiller in slow motion?
For those who expected immediate changes by Benedict XVI, they were pretty disappointed by the first few months of Benedict's pontificate. However, a year later we are beginning to see the movement many suspected was on the way. There have been some substantive Curial changes. There was the matter concerning Fr. Maciel which apparently had been pending for some time.
I don't really find this tactic surprising. Before moving forward, it is best to know where you are. So, to take a pace and look at the lay of the land before deciding how to act. It does reintroduce the question of what the actual pattern of the Pontificate will be but we are early in the discussion.
