How long do you think it will take to select the new pope?
Pay no attention to those TV newscasters talking about the possibility of snow next week. And yes, I know we have traditionally had some of our biggest storms in March. It's not going to happen.
And I'm willing to bet on it.
Speaking of betting, I decided to have a little fun yesterday on my Facebook page with something else in the news you may have heard about.
On the very first day of March, Roman Catholics (of which I consider myself a proud member) find themselves dealing with something that has not happened in more than 600 years.
No, not one of the good sister admitting maybe they went over the edge a bit in rapping our knuckles with those heavy brass rulers.
We are without a leader. Popeless, you might say.
Pope Benedict XVI abdicated his post yesterday afternoon, whisked away from the Vatican in a white helicopter to become a 'simple pilgrim,' as he referred to it.
Now all eyes are on the conclave of cardinals and the selection of the next pontiff.
Here's what I was wondering: How long to you think this will take?
I actually set a line on it. I put it at a week, and I am taking the over. It appears as if the conclave will start sometime early next week.
So what do you think? How long do you think it will take? Post a comment and let me know.
