Benedict XVI

Huh - I wonder how the new pope's name will be interpreted in light of St. Malachy's prophecies. Scroll down to the next to last pope.

With the new pope being Ratzinger it looks like John Allen will be in even more demand than usual for interviews - he literally wrote the book on the man.

UPDATE: His opening remarks suggest that the unusual focus John Paul II put on Mary may continue.

do i understand malachy correctly that only one more pope will be named between now and Judgment? that sort of changes the calculus with regard to the age of the pope. they should have picked a two-year-old!!!

Yep, that's the idea. Maybe they need to start naming much much younger cardinals to give us a little more time.
