Pope Benedict Resignation: Global Reaction
Posted by BCStoned on Mon, Feb 11, 2013, at 2:50 PM:

An Hispanic may invade Rome, as Pope. Perhaps an African.

Since Latin America is home to so many Catholics, it is likely to be the source for a new Pope.

I would throw my hat into the ring, but I can't speak 8 or more languages, and besides, I'm no longer a Catholic. Except for the languages, I was qualified until I was 12.

It's Bollinger County for me, and not Rome. Visions of grandeur, does this disqualify me from owning a cap-pistol?

I suspect he may be suffering early symptoms of Alzheimer's or some other mental affliction which he believes may well prevent him from being able to fulfil the duties of office.

I was thinking the same thing - Alzheimer's maybe.

My prayers are with him, and with the Cardinals, that they may choose a wise and capable successor to fill the shoes of the Fisherman.
