The Canon Law of the Catholic Church does not stipulate expressly that the Pope has to be a Cardinal, Bishop or, for that matter, even a priest. With
this in mind, during the recent Papal Conclave, suppose that through some act of Divine Intervention, YOU were elected Pope. There you are, sitting
at home, watching Judge Judy on television and a big black mercedes loaded with Cardinals pulls into your driveway. They knock at your door and
annouce that YOU were elected Pope. What would you do as the new spiritual leader of the Catholic Church? Incidentally, what would you select as
your name as pope? Remember, it's a tradition.
