Professor who's your man this time around?
I could live with Card. Dolan. For one thing, like the former Card. Ratzinger, I don't think he wants the job.
I think the chances of there ever being an American Pope are very slim.
yes, for a variety of reasons.

That is a great idea.

He will layeth the Smackdown on all dissenters.

On his travels he will shout "Finally the Pope has come back to (insert country)"

Also at the next council when he asks the other bishops what they think about any dogmas he wants to define, he can tell them "it doesn't matter what you think!!"

So, will the next Pope be named Peter?    Undecided

My hope is that, whomever is selected as the new Pope, he picks a good name like Michael, and not one that's hard to spell.

There already is a Pope Michael:

Bob Beckel on "The Five" suggested the Cardinal electors should look to South (and Central, probably) America for +Benedict's successor, because that's where 41% of Roman Catholic's reside.

I would like to see an Italian elected because the Pope is the Bishop of Rome.

Well, the Pope can come from anywhere because he has universal ordinary jurisdiction.  So South America, Italy, Antarctica, all the same to the Pope.

From the statement from the EP on the Pope's resignation:

"His writings will long speak of his deep theological understanding, through his knowledge of the Fathers of the undivided Church, his familiarity with contemporary reality, and his keen interest in the problems of humankind.

We Orthodox will always honor him as a friend of our Church and a faithful servant of the sacred proposition for the union of all. Moreover, we shall rejoice upon learning of his sound health and the productivity of his theological work." http://www.goarch.org/news/epbartholomew-benedict-02112013

To put it mildly, an Easter Catholic Pope would probably have a negative impact on Orthodox-Catholic relations.

Most Orthodox would much prefer a "Latin" Pope over an Eastern Catholic one.

So? A Byzantine Pope would be awesome. An Oriental one is fine too.
Pope JPII's mother was Byzantine Catholic.

That is unconfirmed.  I asked my former bishop who is a bishop of the UGCC if this is true.  He said Pope John Paul II never confirmed nor denied this matter when he was asked about it.

Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson


Reasons He Might Not Get Elected: The Catholic Church in Africa can be very disconnected from the Church that the majority of the European Cardinals live in. In Africa the top issues aren't sexual politics and theological disputes, they are exorcism, animism, the growth of Islam, and condemnation of Western economic policy.

Do we want a pope or a witchdoctor?
Please tell me that you are not serious.
I don't know, this one hit me pretty hard today, I liked Benedict much and he fought the good fight for Orthodoxy (Not EO people, so spare me) and brought much back for tradition including the TLM and probably tirelessly fought the modernists and liberals investing the Vatican like rats, that it probably took it's toll on him. Who knows what we're going to be subjected to in replacing him.


The Church has serious issues in these times and already I'm hearing this like it's some kind of a popularity contest like an American election with a bunch of brainless stooges controlling the levers moaning and wailing about "diversity" and "change".

I've had about enough of both, I don't think I can take any more.

These are dire times, popes just don't "resign" like this.
