This is why I was always against a pope retiring.
You can’t have this constant tie-in with the last pope.
This is not good. I bet it will continue. Would NOT be surprised IF Ratzinger decides to come to the new pope’s inauguration Mass.
The Vatican should not have publicized the phone call. Not kosher.
Not good. I am still not ruling out a schism.
Lets face it. I got more right than most.
Said, all in print, that it would be a pope over 75. Got that right. √
Bergoglio was on my published printed list. √
Said the new pope would not be called ‘Peter II’. √
Said it would be non-European. √
So I am pretty pleased.
