Congratulations ARCHBISHOP Ganswein!

Well whaddya know? The Holy Father shot that one out of left field! Georg has been appointed Prefect of the Pontifical Household (so he’s in charge of the Pope’s household, I think), and he has been appointed a titular archbishop (one who is not involved with a diocese, but bears the title of Bishop or Archbishop). He will also continue as the Pope’s chief private secretary. It will be a big role, with a lot of work, and people who think he has too much influence already will not be impressed, but I am delighted! 😀
