Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany has been selected by the Roman Catholic church as the new pope. - CNN
And we were all looking for a black latin american?
Just a few hours ago the cardinals elected the new pope. Many who read this blog don't give a rip, but I do. I think the last pope was a great guy to advance the kingdom of God, following a couple popes who had more struggles. Even as I struggle through some catholic doctrines, I think the catholic/orthodox/protestant convergence/healing that is occuring after ~1000 years of splitting is a really good thing.
A big question, thanks to Andrew Jones, has to be what does the catholic church do to engage the future?
