I just want to put an idea out. Do u think the next pope will be black or a latino? I think its time for a change and the Vatican should move on to a more diverse view for the Church.

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

Ah, one of the more interesting aspects of this whole ordeal. I know there are 9 days of mourning for the pope's death. Then, what they call, a conclave happens. Every Catholic Cardinal (highest rank before Pope) 80 or younger get together and choose a Catholic male who hasn't been married to the position of Pope. This will most likley be a Cardinal.
What's facinating about this is that the Cardinals are from all over the world (117 will participate). And they will be locked inside the Sistene Chapel with no communication to the outside until a Pope is announced.
We will know by the middle of the month. It just so happens that a friend of mine will take a class trip to Italy in the middle of the month, and could be in the Vatican when they announce the new Pope.

He was a great man whose love and devotion far surpases most men and yet he was still a humble and caring person.
The next Pope may be a South African who has dealt with insurgances and AIDS for years. But we will find out in a few weeks for sure.
