Contemplating it all from the great Pacific Northwest

We have a Pope!

Congratulations to Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. I’m not at all disappointed with this result but will admit to being surprised. I didn’t think he would win it. My first thought is that he may be the man to do some housecleaning of the sort that it is said JPII refrained from doing.

Here are some quotes from the former Cardinal.

And here are some of Ratzinger’s own words on a number of scholarly and church issues.

I’m sure we will hear more in the future.
