MY THREE CHOICES FOR THE NEXT POPE, NOT THAT I AM CLAIRVOYANT OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, OR MAYBE?
MY NUMBER ONE CHOICE:
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:
He has much experience and would serve as an interim pope. It would be a delicious turn of events and put us back at square one and the traditional manner in which popes live out their office. He could take on the new name in continuity: Pope John Paul Benedict I
MY NUMBER TWO CHOICE:
Angelo Cardinal Scola:
Since I am half Italian, I certainly would offer up Angelo Cardinal Scola. The photo below is enough qualification to make him a successor to Pope Benedict, the cope, the German look, the Italian heart:
MY NUMBER THREE CHOICE:
Marc Cardinal Ouellet
Since I am half Canadian, I would also offer up Marc Cardinal Ouellet. While a Canadian and thus appealing to the United Kingdom and America, he is also from Quebec and would appeal to the French. He is universal. He likes Roman Chasubles!
Save this abdication video, it is historic, to say the least! Watch the more muted shock of the papal MC, Msgr. Marini and the more visible shock of the bishop to his left!
