the next pope might be black

according to this report from the times of london, "wilton daniel gregory, 60, the archbishop of atlanta, said that in the past pope benedict XVI had himself suggested that the election of a black pontiff would "send a splendid signal to the world" about the universal church."

it's interesting that the catholic hierarchy is already looking ahead to the next pope. especially, in light of st. malachy's prophecy of the popes in which he claimed that the next pope to be called petrus romanus (peter the roman) will be the final pope.


then theres that whole 21 december 2012 thing...
