On Benedict and His Successor

Email Email Print

Leave it to Pope Benedict to be a transformational figure even as he exits.  I hope he is blessed with a long and productive retirement from which many good and important books issue.

Here are the odds as seen from Ireland.

I hope Los Angeles’ Cardinal Maohoney has the decency to stay away from the conclave, and I hope that Benedict finds some way of getting that message across.  Too bad that the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church will prevent Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia and Archbishop Gomez of Los Angeles from being in the conclave, but whomever emerges from it as the new pope –and of course anyone is eligible, including those two men– will have a wonderful bench of American bishops bequethed him by Benedict, which include that pair as well as Cardinal Dolan.
