This is a rumor that has been floating around for some time. I found an e-mail thread between myself and Rocco of Whispers mentioning the rumor in April 2007.
The official release from the Vatican
Press release from New Orelans
Rocco’s story from Whispers
I have a number of stories I could share about Archbishop-Elect Aymond, but that’ll come in due time. I’m on a flight in a few hours to El Paso for a baby shower.
In his eight years as Bishop of Austin, he was a great influence on this diocese, the student community at the University Catholic Center and me personally. He has had a dinner each semester with the guys of Lambda Omega Alpha and visiting the UCC on a regular basis.
Congrats to the Archbishop-Elect! What a loss for Austin.
UPDATE: More statements and whatnot.
