The Next Pope
The next pope could potentially have a lot of influence over a lot of things. If the Catholic church became a leader, rather than a stifling force, of progressive thinking, a whole generation could grow up believing in a more perfect future world rather than seeking to go back to ways of the past.
I'm a believer that the next Conclave of Cardinals will choose a transitional pope, someone very like JPII, someone like Cardinal Tettamanzi of Milan, so as not to rock the boat too much after 27 years of stability. So perhaps my hope is more that the pope after the next pope will usher in a new era. But it will be interesting to watch.
