ON THE subject of Ghana’s Cardinal Peter Turkson as potentially the next Pope, as Hugh McLoughlin has previously predicted in the Scottish Catholic Observer, Hugh O’Shaughnessy picks up the subject in The Independent with reverence to Britain’s most senior Catholic clergyman, Cardinal Keith O’Brien.
“When Benedict XVI visits Britain next month, Ghana’s Cardinal Peter Turkson will be with him,” Hugh O’Shaughnessy said.
“His Eminence Cardinal Turkson, the fourth of 10 children, has wasted little time in hitting the highest reaches of the Roman Catholic Church. He is 122nd in seniority among the 179 cardinals, many of whom have retired and would never be regarded as papabili (papal material). In precedence, the Ghanaian stands just a few places behind the Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, Keith O’Brien, and the semi-retired former archbishop of Westminster, Cormac Murphy-O’Connor.”
