"Shake-up" at Vatican?

Margaret Cabaniss at Inside Catholic reports of a rumor that Pope Benedict XVI is considering shifting around some of the lower-level administrators at the Vatican, in the wake of recent scandals.

Of course, the idea that either the lifting of the Society of St. Pius X excommunications, or the nomination of Fr. Wagner as Bishop of Linz, was a bad idea in and of itself is stupid.

Fr. Wagner is just the kind of priest we need to be a bishop, and any bishop who thinks *otherwise* should be removed from his office.

Similarly, Williamson aside, the SSPX needs to be normalized.

I wonder if the rumor is only half-right. I should wonder if the Holy Father is not considering the removal of those who supported the SSPX or Father Wagner, but the removal of those who openly defied and criticized His Holiness.
