Indianapolis is losing its Cardinal-Designate, Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin, who was announced Monday as the next Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey, opposite New York City. He is considered a moderate, chosen by Pope Francis to replace a conservative who just reached retirement age. It’s been evident for awhile that the Pope’s had his eye on Tobin; when our Bishop Cate, the Episcopal Bishop of Indianapolis, visited the Anglican Centre in Rome with Francis last month, Tobin’s who they talked about. The Pope seems to want his own man in the New York media market; Tobin gets his red hat on 19 November. (Michael Conroy/Associated Press)
