I decided to do some of what I call “conclavian blogging,” although I have no official information to share with anyone.
We Catholics do know how to have more fun than you might think. Today, a very funny, but also strangely wonderful video crossed my path. One of my “favorite” papabili is Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, known as Chito Tagle, of the Philippines. He is young, very humble (rides a bike, lives simply) and has a good record on the “challenging matters,” (ahem-clears throat), and has been a great student of Vatican II. (I do not see the world divided into some pre-and-post-Vatican-II battle for good or evil, by the way. But again, that’s another blog post.)
So I like Tagle a lot. He is 55, just like me. Am I old enough to have a pope my age? *sigh* Imagine my generational surprise when I saw this, which you may have seen, but I am showing it anyway. And by the way, he is young, he studied the Council, but make no mistake – none of the contenders are likely to make big changes. That does not stop me from asking Bl. Pope John XXIII to intercede with the Holy Spirit on this matter. I do like to remember that there is no accounting for the Holy Spirit.
Enjoy the video of Cardinal Tagle… and stay tuned!
