The Racing Form

Reporting that "there is a push" to have Washington Archbishop Donald Wuerl's successor as bishop of Pittsburgh named by year's end, the Post-Gazette's Ann Rodgers unveils a shortlist of eight -- five of whom are currently diocesan bishops, with a Philadelphian and a former priest of Philly Lite (i.e. Allentown) thrown in for good measure.

Word's come from on high that, in keeping with recent US trends, the 12th bishop of Pittsburgh will be coming to the Steel City from the head of another local church.

As always, stay tuned.
