Cardinal Arinze

Cardinal Arinze

AFP: Francis Arinze of Nigeria, Peter Turkson of Ghana and Marc Ouellet of Canada were among the cardinals hotly tipped by bookmakers on Monday to take over from Pope Benedict XVI.

William Hill bookmakers named 80-year-old Arinze as their favourite to replace the pontiff following

Monday’s shock announcement of the pontiff’s resignation with odds of 2-1, followed by Turkson at 5-2.
Coral also tipped Arinze as the likeliest successor with odds of 7-4, followed by Turkson at 2-1 and Ouellet in third place at 5-1.

The bookmaker also offered odds of 8-1 on Archbishop Angelo Scola of Italy and 10-1 on Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras.

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power named Ouellet as the favourite with odds of 5-2, followed by Arinze at 3-1 and Turkson at 4-1.

During the 2005 conclave of the Vatican’s College of Cardinals that elected Benedict, Arinze was considered “papabile,” or a…

When I first heard this I believed it to be a joke.  But it is official. I wonder if the next Pope will be more of a progressive?  Time will tell.

ImageSources close to the Vatican have hinted at the surprise anointing of former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams as the new Pope when Benedict XVI steps down at the end of the month. Following the shock announcement of Pope Benedict’s retirement, the first occasion a Pope has resigned in over 600 years, it was clear to outsiders that something of great significance was afoot in the See of Rome.

The key issue turns out to be one of ecumenism and practical interdenominational politics rather than theology. The appointment of Williams as Pope is seen by the Vatican as a way to build bridges towards greater Church unity, but not only with the Anglican Communion as might be assumed. As one Cardinal put it, “There is a great drive towards greater unity with the Orthodox Church, but the greatest stumbling block to progress has been that of facial hair. Basically, all the…

Just hours after Pope Benedict XVI’s surprising Feb. 28 resignation, bookmakers have already started placing odds on his successor.

Quickest off the mark was the Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, which has already gone through three favorites for the position, starting off with Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze, before shifting to Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson and then to Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet — who at the time of this writing is the most favored option, with odds of 11 to 4. A rival bookie, Ladbrokes, currently has Turkson as the slight favorite at 3 to 1, followed by Arinze (7 to 2) and then Ouellet (4 to 1).

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One billion Catholics are shocked by the departure of Pope Benedict XVI. The 85-year-old pontiff says he doesn’t have the energy to continue.

Kai Jackson has the impact on the Catholic Church and its members here in Maryland.

News that Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation stunned Catholics worldwide, yet no group appears to have been more surprised than the cardinals the pope first told.

“It’s like watching your own dad get old and admit that he’s not up to all the duties that being head of the family involves,” said Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

The pontiff says he’ll step down at the end of the month. He told cardinals that he no longer has the strength to do the job.

He’s the first pope to resign in 600 years. Experts say it’s something that just doesn’t happen.

Pope Benedict XVI, Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger, announced that he is resigning and many people believe the next Pope will be the last Pope.

The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin. They purport to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few anti-popes), beginning with Pope Celestine II (elected in 1143) and concluding with the successor of current pope Benedict XVI, a pope described in the prophecy as “Peter the Roman”, whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.

When I was a kid, I went to Catholic School. The early years of my education was in Canada’s Arctic   I was instructed by Nuns who floated around the school as if they didn’t have feet but roller skates instead. When we moved back to Edmonton, my Catholic education was at the hands of a kid named Rolland. Sure I went to a Catholic School, but I only remember the lessons he taught in the school yard.

Roland was the type of person who would only know a small bit of information, add it to what he thought was true and gave examples to prove his street cred. It worked, we all believed everything that came out of his mouth. He was charismatic. Every grade three kid knew he was THE authority on all things from the Prime Minister of Canada being married to Queen Elizabeth II to when the last Pope dies the world will end.

85 year old Pope Benedict XVI has today announced that he is stepping down as Pope. In his speech he stated that the reason for his resignation was due to ill health, which is an unusual move considering that the last Pope to resign before his death was over 600 years ago.

Many are calling the move brave, signifying a modern age. Others are saying that a new and younger Pope is overdue, especially given recent scandals in the Catholic church.

The Vatican hopes to choose a new Pope before Easter.
