Three New Cardinals Or Not — The Next Pope Will NOT Be From America. SORRY!

by Anura Guruge

That Pope Francis is creating 3 more U.S. cardinals, bringing the number of U.S. cardinal electors to 10, does NOT MEAN that the Next Pope will be American.


Pigs will fly first.

Even with 10, the second largest electoral block after Italy, the U.S. cardinal electors only have 12% of the required votes.

Multiple reasons why the next pope will not be
American, black, Asian or under 70.

But for today, BLAME Trump.

Trump has ignited the “Ugly American” spectre across the globe!


Not my doing. I only note and comment.

The Chances Of Pope Francis RESIGNING Just Went Up — With November 19, 2016 Consistory.

by Anura Guruge

I was anticipating this 4 months ago!

Remember I was the ONLY person who identified ‘Pope Francis’ as a possible pope,
IN PRINT, ahead of his election.

I even got the November 19, 2016 date right.

Click to access “Reuters” coverage of the forthcoming November 19, 2016, cardinal creating consistory.


I also discussed, in this post, the SIGNIFICANCE of a November cardinal-creating consistory. Click image to access August 22, 2016 post.

Not a given, BUT Pope Francis opting for this November 19, 2016 cardinal creating consistory CERTAINLY increases the likelihood that Pope Francis may consider resigning/retiring/abdicating once he turns turns 80 on December 17, 2016.

He has openly talked about this possibility.

That he is TOPPING up the cardinal electors to the MAXIMUM 120 (legally) permitted is significant.

Let the “NEXT POPE“, papabili, speculation commence.
