The departure of Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte of Montreal




Montreal Cardinal Jean Claude Turcotte is officially retired but since his replacement was not appointed, he continues to act as leader.
Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com) has known the Cardinal:
“I’m not a practicing Catholic, but I liked the Cardinal Turcotte who is not an intellectual, nor a religious … He is a former athlete who has practiced boxing and loves detective novels. I have offered once to him the Tom Wolfe – A Man in Full.
We are far from the serious reading of Benedict XVI!
Turcotte loves life and he was good friend of journalist Michel Vastel (1940-2008 )…”
Despite his resignation, Cardinal Jean Claude Turcotte will preside at the 2011 Midnight Mass broadcast on Radio-Canada and Eurovision. The celebration will come from Repentigny (Lanaudière) in one of the oldest churches built in Quebec in 1725.
The soloist will be Raphaelle Paquette (opera singer).
