On the front pages


The transfer of Spokane’s Catholic bishop, Blase Cupich, to become archbishop at the country’s third-largest archdiocese at Chicago, got some coverage in Sunday’s papers but not as prominently as might have been expected. (There was some Saturday as well.) Cupich was often described as, in the context of higher-level church leaders, a middle-roader, generally sticking to official Vatican policy but urging a low-key and calm approach to those who disagree. That could be an indicator of where the church’s leadership may be headed at the moment.
