Cardinal Arinze strikes again!
I found this article from the Heart, Mind, and Strength blog. In the Jubilee Year I attended a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Arinze and was impressed by his humor and piety.

I wonder if the Ratzinger Fan Club will consider adding a mug with Arinze's mug on it. Or perhaps we will see the Cardinal Arinze Fan Club established! Better yet, maybe we should wait....
