Jesuit Almost Pope

I have to say the Holy Spirit knows what he is doing. Catholics believe that the College of Cardinals are guided by the Holy Spirit when electing a new Pope. According to the AP, Cardinal Martini, who rumor has it won a significant number of votes in the most recent Conclave, has expressed some positions contrary to Catholic teaching. Among these are praise for legalized abortion and support for condom use to prevent the spread of AIDS. Of course the College of Cardinals went with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, infuriating media types who were rooting for the election of a non-Catholic, or at least a Jesuit.

Thank God this papabile fell short. Vive il Papa.
