On an interview related to another matter -the manner of reception of Holy Communion by the leader of the Neocatechumenal Way, Kiko Argüello -, Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship, answered a different question (Petrus):
...Cardinal Arinze should be about to leave the helm of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. In a first moment, it seemed that you were the favorite for his succession, the arrival of Archbishop Angelo Amato and your return to Sri Lanka were mentioned. What can you tell us?
"I have not received any official communications, but so many untrue things have been written in the newspapers. As for myself, I submit myself obediently to the decisions of the Holy Father. "
