Whisperings About the Jesuit Father General

Rocco at Whispers in the Loggia tells us that Jesuit Father General Peter-Hans Kolvenbach has met with Benedict numerous times since his becoming Pope, more times than any other major religious superior (maybe he's not so aloof after all!). He also fills us in on speculation about Kolvenbach's possible retirement, and rumors of the calling of a Jesuit General Congregation in the near future:

At a private audience granted to Kolvenbach on 11 June 2005, sources within the Society tell Whispers that the Father-General requested Benedict XVI's input on consulting with the Jesuit provincials worldwide on the "possible" calling of a General Congregation in 2008, the business of which which would "possibly" include the election of his successor as Superior General.
