According to rumour (such as here on Whispers in the Loggia) it appears that archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, the secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship may be leaving Rome to take up an appointment as archbishop of Colombo in his native Sri Lanka. Archbishop Ranjith`s utterances on the liturgy have been most encouraging to those who love the Extraordinary form of the Roman Rite. There has been only one cardinal in Sri Lanka before now (Thomas Benjamin Cooray, who got the honour in 1965). Well that means there is a precedent.
