    Benedictus the 16th we salute you!
    Well not really because I'm not Catholic but anyway.

    Ratzinger is expected to just continue the path JP II was taking.
    Very conservative and even less open to other religions.

    They also needed only 5 voting rounds this time, on of the fastest elections of our modern times...

    Just 58 (very young), but he ruled alot longer than most (25 years).
    The maximum age for a pope to be when he gets elected in 80 and Ratzinger is 78.

    They didn't even want a long ruling pope this time so the younger ones had no chance of being chosen anyway.

    From a German news source
    Joseph Ratzinger Is Selected to Lead Catholic Church

    The next year should be interesting.

    Personally I find it interesting that they choose someone so closely associated with Pope John Paul II, it could show a real commitment to his causes.

    l Stone Hold l Now We're Cooking! l Thanks to Kaos for the awesome sig!
