Non-thoughts on the papal election

Filed under: Just Stuff — theotheri @ 9:44 pm

I can’t pretend I haven’t noticed.  Or that I don’t think it’s a big deal.  Or that I haven’t read a lot about it, or have a lot of thoughts about it.

But enough people who are better acquainted with the new Pope Francis than I am, and who indeed may be believing, practicing Catholics, have had a great deal to say.

So I am not going to write about the thoughts I’ve had about the papal election and where I think Pope Francis might direct the Vatican and the RC Church.  Time will tell.

Besides, what happens in any religious community is at least as much a result of what the people think and do as what their leader thinks and does.

So tomorrow back to my prosaic hodge podge of postings.




  1. I missed it. I was out training under a beautiful moonlit sky.
    I think there was a comet there too – but I didn’t know about it until I got home, so I missed that too.

    • I think the announcement of the papal election was a cross between a cup game and a political election party. What the implications really are will take a little more time. I would, however, be interested in hearing your impressions in the coming months and years — events will undoubtedly be perceived by you from a different perspective than my own.

      But the comet – now you really do have my sympathies that you missed that!
