For those cardinals who see continuity as crucial, their candidate might well be the man known around Rome as “the little Ratzinger”. Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, 67, has led the Congregation for Divine Worship since 2008. The nickname “little Ratzinger” comes from when he served as chief of staff for the doctrine committee of the Spanish bishops’ conference, writes John Allen in NCR Online.
