Habemus papam

Joseph Ratzinger: Pope Benedict XVI
I’m hopeful

Modernists hate him.

Not only does he honour St Benedict, an inspiration for traditional Mass-and-office Catholicism, but he didn’t choose a name that alludes to Vatican II like the John Pauls did.

Coincidentally, in a ‘conclave’ of our own just the other afternoon some friends and I unanimously agreed that he wouldn’t be a bad choice.
