Vatican Rumors: Schönborn to head CDF, Müller to Mainz?
The Malaysian Novus Ordo paper Herald has published an interesting article regarding expected upcoming personnel changes at the Vatican. Citing “well-placed sources” at Vatican City, the July 15 article states that Francis had originally meant to make some major changes to the Roman Curia in mid-May, which are now expected to take place in September, after the long summer hiatus. Here is a link to the full article:

The Herald makes a number of interesting predictions. The most explosive of them is the following: Francis may transfer “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, currently the head of the so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), to the vacant see in Mainz, Germany — and move “Cardinal” Christoph Schonborn, currently the “Archbishop” of Vienna, from the Austrian capital to Rome to become Muller’s successor at the CDF.
