Last time there was a papal election, my own thought was that Joseph Ratzinger would never be chosen as the cardinals would think he might be perceived as too traditional, so my hope was for Cardinal Arinze. It wasn't to be and he'd probably be thought to be too old now (although you never know!)
I like what he says here. Very clear, very concise, no messing about:
"That is not Catholic Doctrine!"He's speaking about the "fundamental option". I seem to remember that what he describes as NOT Catholic doctrine is pretty much what we were taught at seminary by some of the moral theology profs. Sadly, it was not the only occasion when something that was NOT Catholic doctrine was foisted on us. Could have done with a visit from Cardinal Arinze - he would have been purrrfect!!!
