Conversation chez Fellowship of Catholic Scholars conference

REV. MSRG. MICHAEL J. WRENN (to the group): ....seeing as Archbishop Wuerl is Archbishop of Washington and likely to become a cardinal this November.

CACCIAGUIDA (aside, to Msgr. Wrenn): Even with two cardinals still living?

MSGR. WRENN (aside, to Cacciaguida): No, Cardinal Hickey died.

CACCIAGUIDA: I was thinking of Cardinal Baum.

MSGR. WRENN (pause, then): You're right!

CACCIAGUIDA: Always the tone of surprise!
