Rumour of appointment to see of Milan RUMOURS and reports are going round the Continent that the Holy Father may appoint Mgr. Montini, one of the two Papal ProSecretaries of State, to succeed the late Cardinal Schuster as Archbishop of Milan.

Similar rumours spread to a greater or lesser extent whenever an episcopal see falls vacant. Sometimes they are based on mere gossip; elsewhere they express a hope that a see may be given a certain well-loved prelate very widely known for his great gifts.

The hopes of Mgr. Montini himself are well known. He has served the Holy Father in the Vatican throughout h i s pontificate, a n d pleaded with His Holiness to allow him to decline nomination to the Sacred College so that he could continue to serve him so personally and intimately.

Naturally a great deal of extra work fell upon Mgr. Montini's shoulders during the Holy Father's illness.
