Yet more rumors

So gossip is one of those nasty sins, but I'm only doing it to pass along the information I've seen thus far. Both NLM and Zadok have noticed the following in the Bolletino (the Vatican News Bulletin, but writing it in Italian sounds so much better) today:

Il Papa ha ricevuto ieri sera in Udienza: Card. Francis Arinze, Prefetto della Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti; Card. Darío Castrillón Hoyos, Presidente della Pontificia Commissione "Ecclesia Dei".
This translates (thanks to Zadok) as:
Yesterday evening, the Pope received in audience:
Francis Cardinal Arinze, Prefect for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments
Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, President of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei."
Given the positions of Cardinals Arinze and Hoyos, this is of course setting off speculation that this audience was directly related to the not-so-patiently awaited Motu Proprio. Not that it takes much of anything to set off rumors, but this one has three dots that certainly form a straight line. We shall see what comes of it. March 25 is only two days away, you know, and its actual celebration a day after.
