  1. Thank God Brazilian ex-prez lulla is not a priest, otherwise he would apply for the “job”. (he is mad because obama won a Nobel Prize and he didn’t.)

  2. Not necessarily appropriate related, but Poppy Montgomery popped into my mind first.

    It’s likely they will get a third world type who will erode the good parts of the foundations of the faith.

  5. I’ll take Poppy as Pope, if there is a god I am sure he would want to talk to her… a lot.
    People would listen to her.

    I thought I read somewhere that one of the signs of the apocalypse was when two popes reigned in a short period of time. Maybe it was that the apocalypse was going to happen within two pope reigns after John Paul II. meh. If I did read this someone would have mentioned it by now.

  6. Um…

    I think you have to be a Cardinal to be eligible, folks…

  7. Often wondered why more popes don’t hang it up before they croak. Some of ‘em can barely function during their final months/years. Benedict didn’t look all that healthy when he got the job, and certainly looked like the creepiest pope I’ve ever seen.

    This will give the press a bit of a diversion from the latest budget mess, sequestration, barreling towards us all at the end of the month.

  8. Looking forward to President Pope and Change’s recommendation for who the new pope shalt be. Not!

  9. So I guess Benedict isn’t going to open a little breakfast egg shoppe?

  10. I second Digi, Nope and the Hell nope.

    By the way, any Male, Baptized Catholic may be elected Pope. Note I didn’t say “Can”.

  11. Two Cardinals enter, one Pope leaves…

  12. According to the prophecy of Malachy, there will only be one more Pope. Things get real endy from here on out.

  13. Paul Moore, one more after the current one who is stepping down?

  14. Saint Malachy made 112 “prophesies”…. he came close on a few of them…… Not a lot of people are going with it because of his miss rate

  15. What about the prophecy of Saint John the Mushroom-head?

  16. What’s that curse about living in interesting times?

    Comment by PatrickP — February 11, 2013 @ 5:04 pm

  17. I find these end of the world things interesting. Because Dec 21st didn’t work out, I am hoping for whatever the prophecy of Malachy is.

    Please keep me updated so I know when to panic.

  18. Nah,
    Twelfth Imam’s comin’.
    (sung to the tune of Ely’s Comin’)

    I won’t accept any end-times situation until I see guys wanderin’ around with shoulder pads, big boots, psychotic face decoration, carryin’ around sawn-off shotguns, an’ drivin’ steam-powered cars.
    (What? Oh, right.)
    … and not in California.

  19. According to what I have been reading, There is one more Pope, called Peter, and he is around until Rome burns and the three days of darkness descends, or some such. Interpretations vary.

    Comment by Paul Moore — February 11, 2013 @ 9:00 pm

  20. Peter Peter Pontius eater!

    Only three days of darkness? Feh, hardly worth it, I want something biblical.

  21. It would be neat if they elected someone in his 30′s (there might not be any Cardinals younger than that). Then he’d be Pope for 40 or 50 years.

  22. Remember, Holy Father,
    you’re only Pope for life.

    Comment by DougM (Progophobe) — February 13, 2013 @ 7:50 am

  23. At least, now we can go back to the old line, “Is the Pope Italian?”.

    Comment by ZZMike — February 13, 2013 @ 5:38 pm

  24. Because today was the Holy Father’s last Mass before retirement, my Priest and I had Ex Benedict for lunch.
