Just remember where you first read that Cardinal Dolan can indeed be the Next Pope fulfilling the the
St. Malarkey prophecy.
February 19, 2012 post ‘Anura Guruge Papabili 2012. How Cardinal Dolan Could Be The Next Pope‘.
This e-mail from one of my contacts in Europe refers to the above posted documentary from Tg2. The segment referred to comes in around the 27th minute of the 48:28 minute video.
“Almost towards the end it reports that Cardinal Scola is considered by the majority as the most probable successor of Benedict XVI, but … a few minutes before coming to this issue, the reportage pointed out that the Pope in the recent consistory has named a bunch of new cardinals and among them guess who was the ONLY ONE mentioned?
They showed him among the others and they said that he hit the attention of many with his personality and his contagious smile. They ALSO mentioned a phrase belonging to Card. Dolan which says that Joy is the most visible sign of God’s presence!
The journalist clearly winked an eye, without openly saying it, about the increasing, serious chance that Dolan could become Pope.
Now this made me think a lot. The style of this information, evaluated in the frame of the general communication on the Italian medias about the Church’s issues, suggests that this is not only the journalist’s personal opinion but something that is going on underneath.
It sounds strange to me that the Church might pick a Pope from a rich, anglosaxon, multiconfessional nation like the USA, when Latin America or Africa (which is NOW being strongly named continuously and insistently by the current Venerable Apostolic Pope) fit better in the vision of a growing wide catholic faith, but you will certainly agree that … God’s ways are not our ways.
I hope You to shed light about this new strong bump given to Cardinal Dolan towards the wuthering highs of the Papabili’s List.”
Consider it DONE, my friend — Anura Guruge.
