Whatever happened to Cardinal Law?

Funny you should ask, because the Detroit News has the answer, and it relates to a recent link I posted, too:

Law issued a statement Friday [February 7], saying he plans to move to Clinton, Md., to live at a house owned by the Sisters of Mercy of Alma, a conservative order of nuns based in Alma, Mich.

"I am very grateful to the Sisters of Mercy of Alma for their kind invitation to be their guest during this time of transition," Law said. "It is my hope to be of assistance to the Sisters as a chaplain."

There is no firm date for his move, Law said.

The house is located on the grounds of a convent in Clinton about 20 miles from Washington, D.C. No one answered the phone at the order's headquarters in Michigan on Friday.

And I just blogged about the Alma Sisters on Thursday. Interesting.

The News' Religion page is generally quite worthwhile--it's where I learned about the proponents of G.K. Chesterton's canonization. Unfortunately, the story was published in 1999, and Detroit News links expire after two years.
