Washington, DC's archbishop, Theodore Cardinal McCarrick, did not divulge whether his recent visit with Pope Benedict XVI has resulted in an extended term in office. The cardinal, who submitted his mandatory resignation letter when he turned 75 on July 7 said, "I'm here until the Holy Father says he's happy to accept my resignation." Cardinals often serve well past retirement age.
