It's a Pope!

Apparently they elected a Pope today. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, will lead about a billion Catholics… well, we don’t know where. Sounds like he won’t be around long, as he’s 78. The prophecy draws nearer! Many laugh at St. Malachy’s Prophecy (with good reason), but Ratzinger took the name Benedict, a nod to the prophecy. The 2nd to last Pope, according to St. Malachy, was going to be from the Benedictine order (which I can’t confirm of Ratzinger is or isn’t). In a Church where chance doesn’t exist, taking the name Benedict is a fairly significant symbol.

Should be some interesting news, kooky or otherwise, in the next few days.
