Bishop D'Arcy To Retire?

From the American Papist (look to the right-hand bar of this window) I learned of the pending retirement of the current bishop of Fort Wayne/South Bend. Bishop John D'Arcy is 77 years old; he submitted his resignation 2 years ago as per the requirements. The stories have it that he will announce his replacement tomorrow. His successor is already a bishop currently serving in another diocese.

Bishop D'Arcy came into prominence last spring during the Notre Dame commencement debacle, when President Obama befouled the commencement with his pro-abortion presence there. As far as I'm concerned, there is still much clean-up that needs to happen at the episcopal level that hasn't happened. Why it hasn't happened to date has baffled me, but perhaps these questions will be answered tomorrow.
