About Law


The Pope is under no obligation to accept Cardinal Law’s resignation, but I find it hard to believe they would have leaked this story if Law’s exit weren’t already a fait accompli. Two questions: 1) will Rome appoint a coadjutor bishop, leaving Law in place as a presumptive figurehead; and if not, 2) will Law return from Rome to face the grand jury subpoena and possible criminal indictment, or will the Vatican require him to live inside the Vatican walls in exile, safe from state prosecutors, a la Archbishop Marcinkus?
