Pope Francis Wants to Know, Where the Cardinals Are

On May 31st, all cardinals residing in Rome received a letter written in Italian from Cardinal Angelo Sodano. Referring to a "noble tradition", he asked them, never to leave Rome without informing Pope Francis through the Secretary of State about their exact whereabouts and the time of their absence.

Rorate Caeli adds, "It's funny how this Pope only wants 'tradition' (with a very, very small 't') when it suits his purposes."
