I hope the Cardinals pick someone who isn’t afraid of the future. My church sometimes seems the victim of its own history. JPII was a very holy person, but the conservatism he espoused always rings awfully Pharisaic to me. They too espoused a back to the old days kind of religion. If we Christians believe we are beyond that, then I hope we can practice what we preach. If the next Pope can make a case for principled change, then my prayers will have been answered.
