New Chaldean Patriarch to be selected in December
VATICAN CITY, OCT. 29, 2003 (Zenit.org).- John Paul II called the Synod of the Bishops of the Chaldean Church to meet Dec. 2-3 in the Vatican to elect the new patriarch of Babylon of the Chaldeans.
I'm not sure how they can say they'll meet for two days if there's provision for the synod going on fifteen days before the Pontiff is allowed to step in.
