Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith's second exile

First exiled in 2004 when, as adjunct secretary of Propaganda Fide, he was suddenly nominated Nuncio to Indonesia by Pope John Paul II. Now, under mounting pressures against the formidable Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, it looks like Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, will be going back to his native Sri Lanka, as Archbishop of Columbo, its capital city. See:Apparently Cañizares, the former Archbishop of Toledo, nicknamed 'the small Ratzinger', wished that Ranjith would remain in Rome.
