Anyone other than an American cardinal, though if one was chosen, I would not leave the church.

No Italians, that's for sure -- if I had my druthers, Cardinal Arinze.

Didymus

PS all the news coverage keeps saying the Cardinals are there "to elect one of their own number" which is what will probably happen. But they don't HAVE to choose a Cardinal do they? I think I read someplace that there were a couple Popes who were not even ordained priests at the time of their election.

By "American" Pope, do you also mean one from Central America, Latin America or Brazil, or just the good ole U.S.A.?

ABC News this morning is hoping for a "moderate" to become Pope. Among this list of "moderates," they have included the candidates from Central, Latin and South America, India, and Nigeria. They don't want to see a German or an Italian Pope, though a Belgian candidate would be most acceptable to them.

They described this "college of Cardinals" as being staunchly "conservative" due to the fact that they were mostly brought to "power" in the Church through the efforts of the late Pope John Paul II.

I believe that the next Pope will lean toward a more "moderate" tone on social issues. The Church seems to be heading in that direction anyway, so I doubt that a true conservative will be elected. We will probably get someone with the same economic and peace and social justice concerns as JPII, including staunch opposition to capital punishment and the Afghanistan-Iraq War, but with less emphasis on the pro-life aspects such as abortion, embryonic stem cell, "right to die," etc.

Whomever is chosen, they certainly will have their work cut out for them. I don't expect that they could ever fill the shoes of Blessed Pope John Paul II.

I think Cardinal Arinze would be a devout, stoic and envigorating choice!

Anyone agree?

Definately! Besides, he's got a great sense of humor.

whoever the Holy Spirit selects will be fine with me. since I sincerely doubt anyone here has knowledge of more than a handful of the 120 cardinals around the world, I doubt any opinion expressed here would be of much value.

I have no choice myself. I just pray that the right person for what God wants the Church to accomplish is chosen.

I agree, and isn't it a nice time to pray? I really feel close to the Holy Spirit at the moment...Like he is working in his Church.

The truth is, as many have said, the one that the Holy Spirit chooses.

Personally, what would be wrong with Ratzinger? Kick some butt around the globe!

Also, maybe JP2's Secretary, Stanislaw Dziwisz? He knows the system and has been there, and is definitely a younger candidate.
