Glad you got this thread up. When I first posted what was a vanity thread going by the words WHITE SMOKE, I was excited to hear the good news.

FWIW,

Angelo Scola was very heavily involved with Communion & Liberation, which was an Italian movement that was conservative both economically and socially.

I have joked that after two JohnPauls maybe there should be a GeorgeRingo. Apparently Paul and George were both baptized as Catholic and Geo. brought up as one (others were Anglicans/COE)

As in Peter the Roman. ;-)

It's good they didn't choose me, I'd DEFINITELY have been "Peter", just to stir it up.

Can’t wait to go see the Vatican this summer when we go to Europe.

Summer ought to be OK. But I can tell you from experience not to bother on Easter weekend.

"You know, there was once Pope Hilarius. Hilarious II?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Hilarius" He was made a Saint after death, he should be the Saint of all comedians, although he looks like he was facing a tough crowd, early medieval.

Since I am not Catholic I am not sure the order of the Popes, he was the one from Poland correct?
If we are talking about the same man, I really liked him. Probably read every book he wrote for the general public.
If not, I should learn the names of these men.

I’m curious, what does it mean for the cardinals that didn’t vote for the winner? I mean, if you believe the Holy Spirit picks the Pope and you’re a cardinal that didn’t vote for the winner, what doesn’t that say about your spirituality?

I was, and how I wish she were alive today to witness this moment.

My most treasured item is a rosary I bought there and had blessed at the Vatican - passed on to my child.

And seriously, why is shemp there??

Who’s organizing this thing, Live Nation? Delays like at their rock concerts!

The process is not swift with the winner taking a victory lap. After being elected, he was asked "Do you accept?" Unlike the secular world, acceptance means giving up one's previous life. He is then asked what name he will take. After his acceptance, he is taken to the "Room of Tears" where papal dress in different sizes have been assembled. He will then meet with the other cardinals after which he will go to a chapel for some time of private prayer. He will then be announced from the balcony with his own name in Latin, followed by his chosen name. After that he will give his blessing to the crowd and to you!

..exciting

Really? What's exciting about it? It really won't make any difference in your life at all. Even if the new one is radically different than the old one, and no one in their right mind thinks that, it won't affect you or me in the least.

I had an opportunity to go two Mays ago.
I loved it, the history is unbelievable.
Unfortunately very crowed, and there is no way to linger and look at the art, as everyone is sort of rushed along. You can linger a bit in the Chapel, but those guards will get you if you speak above a whisper.
We went to Peter’s Church, just as beautiful and only a handful of people.

“Why all the excitement about a new Pope?
Why all the excitement before a name is announced?”

Now Raindrop, don’t rain on everyone’s parade. Use your noodle as to why everyone is excited, in particular Catholics. History is being made. The world’s oldest Christian religion. Got it?

If you ever go back I’d recommend the week before Christmas and stay through Midnight Mass.

I had the whole city to myself because pilgrims don’t show up until the 23rd and a lot of Italians are already on holiday.

I remember being on FR the day Benedict was chosen. I’m not a Catholic, but anyone theologically literate was aware of Ratzinger. So I must admit, that was in fact pretty exciting.....

I don't remember a case in Scripture where God relied on the democratic process. Selection of King Saul maybe, but that didn't work out very well.

Yes. he was from Poland. A vigorous, barrel chested athlete of a man who seemed to have a common touch about him.
I saw him at Living History Farms in Des Moines, IA when he visited the US. I'm not Catholic but I enjoyed the mass.

Hope the new pope is as great as John Paul II...

I hope he's as personally holy as JPII was but I'm hoping for a much better Pope.

They've had a few weeks lead time to think things through and converse unofficially. Probably sped up the process considerably.
