    Buena suerte Jorge, vas a necesitar.

    Bonus fortuna Jorge , vos ire egeo is.

    Unfortunately, all the grace of God is not going to save The Catholic Church from its fiscal debacle. Even a turnaround specialist can't fix the cumulative mess created by the previous and ongoing sins committed against the innocents by priests and the cover ups generated by their superiors and a hierarchy in The Vatican that has condoned sweeping it under the rug. Pass it on to the next guy might end up being Benedict's legacy.

    the CC needed a south american pope to counteract the chavista/liberation theology trend in new world politics. Get the masses back on the leash, back on their knees. The Buenos Aires pope will fill the media with his pr jaunts. But his parents immigrated from Italy, indeed Argentina is full of them along with germans, some of them aided by the CC in escaping after WW2. And old Benedict lurking, running the dark bureaucracy from below now, making sure the newcomer won't ask for the wrong books.
