I think the Orthodox are happy as long as they have something to complain about -- which they would, either way.

You, Sir, have a poor opinion of the Orthodox.

Needless to say, the ones you meet online are hardly representative for the bulk of Orthodoxy.

That's just downright rude, and wrong.

Hopefully no scandal is involved (which seems to be the case) or severe illness.  Many years to him!

Btw, just for those who know Chicago and interested in trivia: Division street, if it could go straight through to Rome, would go right through the Cistine Chapel. Holy Trinity Cathedral (0CA) at Rome's longitude would be under the southern half of the dome of St. Peter's Basilica and over the catacombs where St. Peter lies.  Haddon street (the street running along north of the Cathedral) going straight would run under the Baldachin of St. Peter, under the balcony where they say "habenus papam," nick the Obelisk in the center of the Piazza S. Pietro, and go down Via della Conciliazione.

By the list recently posted, it appears that Benedict XVI probably has much in common with Celestine V.

That is what I thought when I first heard the news.

This is false (as others already pointed out).

We should stop pretending that it is not true.  It is.  Why would the Patriarchs come to Rome when the Pope summons them to *his* synod?  It is a pipe dream to think that the EC Patriarchs are not subject to the Pope.

Subjecting oneself to authority and being appointed by an authority are two different things.

i see you are all as shocked as i was. i had to stop working for 10 minutes.

may God have mercy.
now is the time to pray very much for healing and restoration (in the orthodox direction, in my opinion) in the roman catholic church and the other catholic churches affiliated with it.
i have met many fine catholic priests and other people and i know many have a true and living faith.
may God guide them and banish the liberalism that is so deeply rooted in some parts of the church.

I wonder if the new Pope will affect Orthodox-Catholic relations. I'm hoping for a Pope that will use his international fame and western influence to ease the persecution that Orthodox Christians are facing in the Middle East under Islam.

So, two wrongs make a right? One group can punish strangers for what another has done? Even though they are discrete properties, owned and operated by different people?

I really hope we don't do it that way. If you only love those who love you, what is that to you? Even sinners do the same.

Yes, the age limit.  Technically, he can still be elected, but since he cannot elect one, the chances of him being elected is slim.

Blast from the not-too-distant past:

Quote
January 7, 2013. (Romereports.com) The personal secretary to the Pope is now archbishop. During the ceremony at St. Peter's Basilica, three other prelates were ordained: Vincenzo Zani, Fortunatus Nwackukwu and Nicolas Thevenin.

One month ago, Benedict XVI reinforced his trust in Georg Gaenswein by naming him as the Prefect of the Papal Household. His duties will include coordinating activities and meetings for the Pope.

I'm not trying to troll, but genuinely asking.

How much blame is on Pope Benedict with how he handled the priest sex scandals? Could an argument been made that he should have done more?

I'm not trying to troll, but genuinely asking.

How much blame is on Pope Benedict with how he handled the priest sex scandals? Could an argument been made that he should have done more?
Any time anything goes wrong, those arguments can be made.

To what extent is he responsible and what should he have done?

How the RCC handled the sex scandals has been utterly tragic.

In response to your question, I honestly don't known. And in response to your observation, I agree.

I don't think Hans Küng will be in the running. Just a hunch.

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.

Not much from what I've seen, except allowing his predecessor's assylum for Cardinal Law continue.
