I am soo excited!   He is Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger , but now as pope, he shall be known as Pope Benedict XVI.  This is a great day for us Catholics!   For me, it brings tears to my eyes.

Me, too! Its such a happy time! I think hes going to make a great Pope.

I hate that people doubt our new pope already.  Such a shame.  I believe the cardinals voted for the best candidate. 
78?  Hm, I will have to double check that.  He appears younger than that.

He just got elected today! Oh, and yes, he is 78. I know, he doesn't look it! He is the best candidate, I think. He was the right hand man of Pope John Paul 2 for 21 years. My mom said she feels in her heart that he will be wonderful. (Not that my mom is the all-knowing...just interesting...)

Quote from: Seven on April 19, 2005, 01:37:36 pm   

I would like to agree with Megs that it doesn't seem fair to prejudge Ratzinger, on his first few hours. Hey, the Cardinals decided -- it's their job, actually, and I presume that they know what is necessary.

Ironically enough, my parents say that people doubted John Paul II twenty-six years ago, because he was too young, too modern, too athletic, too people-friendly, and so on. IE, too cool, and too rooted in the twentieth century.

My dad thinks that Ratzinger won't be pope for long, and that he's sort of holding the fort for a long-running pope after him. An interesting thought, but I wonder, if that is so, why the cardinals wouldn't have figured things out in the many years when John Paul II was sick.

Thank you for backing me up there.  
I see what your dad is getting at, but I am not too sure I agree.  But that is a different way of looking at the situation.
I have the greatest faith that God wanted this man to be our new pope, and that he is the best choice.

Me, too. God obviously wanted Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

I'm not sure if this is true, but in another forum they said that Nostradamus has foreseen this and that he will perform a miracle. We'll see *lol*

The Holy Catholic Church will never be destroyed, so God will most definitely guide our new Pope Benedict XVI. So, go ahead and judge him, but everyone who does will see what a great job he does in leading this Church.

I missed the new pope election!! My mom told me it was a very emotional moment, she shed tears of joy. My sister felt the same. Later I saw on TV. I was expecting that moment.

I hope this Pope follows the steps of our beloved John Paul II. Congratulations for Germany!! You'll proud of Benedict XVI like the Poles were for John Paul II.

This must be a disappointment for those who wished for a less conservative pope with a more modern view of the world. 
I also don't like having people of my country in such positions, cause whatever they do, we'll get the blame. People have already labeled him as the "Nazi Pope". I am so sick of the fact that even today our kids have to justify themselves for things their (great-)grandparents did.
And now we have a german Pope ... *sighs*

As an African cardinal pointed out, it should not matter where the new Pope is from -- he's supposed to care for the whole world. (As for what they call him, there are dozens of nasty nicknames for Ratzinger -- some much more unflattering than that one)

As for conservatism, it's a relief.I wouldn't like to belong to a religion that changed its important teachings radically to satisfy the sociopolitical demands of the moment. I've encountered people who belonged to such faiths, and what little they ended up with was pretty sad.

hello..i posted a few times in the other "pope" thread (from when JP II died)  as i've stated numerous times before (just restating in case someone here doesn't know) I'm not Catholic, but I have a question...what is the purpose of the Pope, and is his role in the church Biblical or man-made? (and I mean no disrespect by the phrase 'man-made', just asking) Also, I've heard a few times that Catholics believe that us Protestants are going to Hell...is this true? i just wanted to clear this up thanks to anyone that answers

i take offense to that little picture comparison, and you post please dont take too much offense. what are we supposed to do, laugh at it? is that supposed to be funny or something? that ur comparing the leader of the catholic church to some disfigured goblin. that's a man whose given his life to God, and i think that in itself deserevs respect. yes i am catholic, but i have friends who aren't who repect him for who he is, and surely don't compare him to demon like creatures, i really just think that's completely uncalled for, and that you should in the future take others feelings into consideration before you post.

anyway, benedict, well joseph ratizinger, not sure how to spell his last name.

he was actually the passed popes closest confident, he was holding his hand when he passed. i personally feel he is a good choice. there have been rumors that john paul wanted him to be pope and thats why it didnt take long at all, that it was a given he would be pope after him. he was in world war II and eventually abandoned the military and turned to God. i think that's beautiful, how in the midst of the war, and the  inessential slaughtering of the jews, how he was able to embrace God. most ppl have the opposite effect. i say good for him. he's a wonderful man who will stand behind the morals and traditions of the catholic church.

Aw. Come on girls, have a little more respect. I thought this was a serious, intelligent matter we're talking about. Geez, come on.  I'm not even going to say anything about that picture comparison up there. That's just insulting.
