Call it a conspiracy, but Vatican leaks show power struggle in Holy See
 

VATICAN CITY—Call it Conspiracy City. Call it Scandal City. Call it Leak City. These days this holy city has been in the news for anything but holy reasons.

“It is a total mess,” said one high-ranking Vatican official who spoke, like all others, on the condition of anonymity.

I'll just say that's a matter of opinion. The East wasn't completely immune.

Calm down there, I never said that the east was immune from scandal - we were talking about the recent articles....they were about the preparation for the next 'interregnum' in Rome after all.

These kind of backalley ecclesial politics bore me to death.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

It is with no rancor that I say it is reasonable to expect there to be a new RCC Pope within several years. Not 'wishing' anything. Life is life, that's all, and no one stays forever. While I do not expect this Pope to resign, I do sometimes speculate who would be the successor. I have a feeling the next Pope will be either an Asian, African or South American. These are areas of marked growth of the RCC.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

This evening Fox News discussed the possibility of an American (Cardinal Dolan, I think they said) becoming the next Pope.
