This cardinal is Italian, but he sure as heck looks German! Maybe that's why Pope Benedict likes him?
John Allen writes about Cardinal Angelo Scola who will be the new archbishop of Milan. This is what Allen writes: "As opposed to some European prelates, Scola is typically not inclined to handwringing about the “silent apostasy,” in the words of John Paul II, of the West. Instead, Scola tends to believe that Christianity still has culture-shaping capacity, if it finds the nerve to make its case effectively."
What do you think of that statement given the on-going Godless secularization of America and Europe?

I like the idea of another Italian pope!
