I would not doubt that in the least.

Ubama was meddling in the Israeli election, don't you think he would want to stick his nose in this too?

I can’t remember the last time I saw the white smoke live (on TV). Maybe it was the early 80s? This is very exciting.

I’ll never forget when they announced Karol Wojtyla, as one of Polish heritage, that was such a huge moment, and the hope that he would be the one who would bring freedom to his homeland. And thanks be to God, he was the one (with a lot of help from President Reagan, of course).

The secular media have no true interest in the Church, just like some of the poster here.

I refused to watch Fox, once I learned Fox sent that horrid Shepard Smith to Rome.

Bandwidth is a problem here; the EWTN feed is higher quality but it lags too much for me.

I’m streaming Vatican Radio/Video, here:

http://www.youtube.com/vaticanradio

Quality of video is poor, but it’s an option for us slowww internet folks.

I don’t recall this much of an organized display when they announced Pope Benedict. I’m thinking I must have missed it, although I remember watching Pope JPII’s funeral. I was too young to watch when he was elected to the papacy.

It will be interesting to see who they have chosen. Especially for someone like me who is still contemplating coming back - it’s a long road, but a good one. I recently attended several Latin Masses, and even though I do not understand much of it, it’s an interesting change from the masses I attended growing up. Plus, the monsignors seem more open to my coming back - based upon a ‘good thorough confession’ vs. the pastor of our local parish that wants me to go through a year of RCIA, and several other things, even though I am already confirmed. (It may be beneficial in many ways, but it’s not like I don’t know my catechism any longer... lol)

Anyway, I’m glad I could come here on FR and not subject myself to the type of ridicule I see on Facebook. It gets extremely tiresome to hear so many disparaging remarks when my experience within the Church was so positive, personally.

If it continues to work like Nostradamus predictions, you can get anything.

E.g., “Peter the Roman.”

The next pope, the seat of Peter, will be the Bishop of Rome. Peter the Roman.

Oilå.

Now if Rome is destroyed during his papacy and there is not another pope... I’ll give the prediction some respect.

:)

ChurchMilitant.tv had a good, informative video on Papal names. You can view it here. Taking the name of Peter just isn't done. No Pope has taken the name. It would be pretty earth-shattering if it did happen.

Cardinal Egan, now commenting on NBC, said that means all the cardinals are marching into a very large room behind the balcony.
