Of Cardinals and Cardinals

I hear there is a bit of … contrast.. among the holy Cardinal Electors.  There is wrangling.  Some want the conclave to be delayed.  Some want it move along quickly.  Some say that a conclave soon would favor a curial man.  Some say that a delayed conclave would favor a “pastoral” man (as if curial work isn’t pastoral!).  Some are demanding that names be named from certain reports.

There could be a date announced 7 p.m Rome time.

In the meantime…

    LOL. A simple, but very funny cartoon, thanks for posting it.

    As for the length of the conclave, I couldn’t care less. As long as they select the right man for the job. Oh yes, and keep the roof of the chapel intact. We don’t want a repeat of 1270 in the present digs of the conclave….

    “What are Cardirals?”

    Cardinals with a cold?

    There once was a cardinal in Rome,
    who said under St. Peter’s dome.
    “I’m such a dope,
    to vote for a pope,
    who claimed to coming from Nome.

    I’m glad to hear that attention is being paid to reports about how the Church is doing. I hope the cardinal electors pay very close attention to listening in their prayers. The Church must serve the mission that Christ gave her.

    Thank you, Fr. Z, for posting these cartoons. It lightens the day and brings a smile to my face. It’s always good to laugh.

    The Cardinals went to the Vatican, To vote who would wear the white hat again, The Lord who had sent them the Spirit ,was with men, And soon that great chair would be filled again.

    There once was a College of Cardinals
    Who used some white smoke as a signal
    They hadn’t a clue
    how to open the flue
    and now they are covered in schrapnel
