Cardinal Walter Kasper’s Retirement, Now Official. Successor, ‘Archbishop’ from Switzerland Named

On June 26, 2010, I told you that there were reports that German Cardinal Walter Kasper had retired from being the the President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity.

I also noted that it was incongruous in that no successor had been named. That is fixed as of today. Swiss Kurt Koch, promoted to being an archbishop, has been named as his replacement.

Since my College of Cardinals stats already have Kasper as retired, there is nothing I have to update.

Just look at yesterday’s post.
