Camerlengo Who Have Become Pope. Extremely Rare & Kevin Farrell Will NOT Be The Next Pope.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read here. From my “The Next Pope 2011” book, which contains a ton of useful information such as this. So, rather than rewrite it, I just grabbed this from page 42. Click on image at the end of this post to access this book.

First & foremost the Next Pope will not be American. You can take it to the bank.

Anybody who thinks that an American cardinal is a papabile is smoking dope, legally or otherwise. Will NOT happen. Pipe dream.

The world does NOT want the Vatican becoming ‘White House East’. That has always been the issue.

Plus, now we have the Sex Abuse Crimes reaching a new crescendo. The U.S. Catholic hierarchy has been totally discredited. The last thing that the other cardinals want is drawing more attention to the the horrendous problems transpiring in the U.S.

Plus, there is also Trump.

Actually, Kevin Farrell strikes out on three counts (at present).

  1. He is American. That is the BIGGEST disqualifier.
    …..
  2. Camerlengos do not often get elected. They are considered the henchman of the previous pope and Francis is not that popular.
    …..
  3. Currently at 71-years of age he is WAY TOO young. The next pope, like the past two, needs to be at least 75.

P.S., I know that the PLURAL of Camerlengo is Camerlenghi. But, not too many other do. So, there was no point using Camerlenghi because it would just mess up those doing a Google on ‘Camerlengos’.

William Cheever Turner’s Amazing Vehicular Art On Display At The ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center’.

Copyright belongs to Mr. William Cheever Turner.



Click to access his impressive Website with a LOT of his pictures to marvel with awe.




I have always said that going to ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. is like visiting a resort rather than a high-end, full-function hospital. They go out of their way to make the environment soothing and pleasing to the senses. You are surrounded by very high-class art and if you are lucky, as I was this morning, with live music from a piano  player at a grand.

They had works by Milford (N.H.) artist ‘William Cheever Turner‘ on display in one wing. I had never heard of him and I wish I had. His work, as you can see, is quite spectacular. I took a few pictures so I could SHARE them with you. You have to check out his. The level of detail and realism is phenomenal.

It was a good day overall, and we were not there for anything serious. These paintings made my morning.

Enjoy.

Piano Player At Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center On Valentine’s Day 2019.

by Anura Guruge


Click for YouTube video.


There are many nice things about the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. They go to GREAT lengths to make it NOT look and feel like a hospital. I kid you not. I have spent a LOT of time at DHMC over the last 13-years. For one, Teischan was born there, and I was there for 3-days on the trot for that.

They have a lot of great art and a number of grands strategically positioned around the rambling campus. This is the one closest to the main entrance. Anybody is welcome to play them, Typically volunteers set out to regale the folks. This appeared to be one of them. Fairly good chance he works there.

This was quite early in the morning, i.e., around 9:30am. But, it was Valentine’s Day. So, it was good. I liked him. You can hear me clapping.

Enjoy.

The New Camerlengo — U.S. Cardinal Kevin Joseph Farrell, The 1st Non-European Camerlengo.

by Anura Guruge

It has been 7-months. Click to access my post.


I did foresee the possibility of an American. Click to access my post.


What is MOST significant with Kevin Joseph Farrell’s appointment is that he is a non-European. A first, and as such, of course, the first American Camerlengo.

Do not read too much into this appointment. It does not indicate that a conclave is around the corner. Having a Camerlengo, on tap, is more normal than not having one. The 7-month gap, though possibly a tad long, is not exceptional. Popes like to wait awhile before they fill this post. Not having a Camerlengo, if the pope was to die, is not the end of the world. It happened when Pius XII died in 1958. The Dean of the College of Cardinals deputized on day 1 and then they elected a cardinal to act as the temporary Camerlengo.

We have had non-Italian Camerlenghi. The last Camerlengo, Jean-Louis Tauran, was French. So was Jean Villot, the iconic Camerlengo of the 1970s. We have also had a Spaniard, Eduardo Martínez Somalo, 1993 to 2007. So, these are the recent non-Italians. But, there was also a spate of French ones in the 14th century during the Avignon Papacy.

Choosing Farrell makes sense. At 71 he is of the right age, though one a few years younger would have made more sense. He is also a curialist; i.e., he works at the Vatican. That is a prerequisite. The Camerlengo has to reside in Rome.

So, this is all good.

Just don’t assume that a conclave is around the corner. Just revel in that he is non-European. A most welcome departure from what had been a 2,000-year custom.

THE Cutest Thing You Will See On Valentine’s Day 2019 — Guaranteed.

Come on. Let me hear you say ‘Aaahhhh!’ — with feeling.

Doesn’t it warm the cockles of your heart.

A sculpture at the ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC), in Lebanon, N.H. Despite how special it is, this is tucked away, on the 5th floor (depending on how you count the floors), off the beaten-track. I was exploring and bumped into it.

Wanted to share with you given it is Valentine’s Day and all.
