Hey guys, I'm a relatively new member and haven't posted much, but thought i might add my thoughts to this conversation.
Before this last conclave, I along with many others I imagine were beginning to think that the Church seemed to be going out of its way to make the
prophecies seem/come true. But for the last couple of days, I've been entertaining a thought, what if they have swung the other way?. Maybe they have
"gone to the ends of the earth" to find a Pope that seemingly can't fit into any prophecy shaped hole.
I'm also thinking that this didn't start at this conclave, but that the plan hit a bump in the road when Pope Benedict aligned himself with Malachy.
I say this thinking they might have been getting worried when John Paul II convincingly it would seem turned out to be the labor of the sun. They pick
a 78 year old German thinking, "he has nothing to do with Olives", and his first step as Pope is align himself with a prophecy, after all when he
first started, I seem to remember there being stories of discord and general unhappiness at him from among his Cardinals and Priests?
So Plan B, you can't pick any Roman/Italians, you can't pick a Peter, and you certainly cannot pick a young black man named Peter. Lets face it the
list is a lot shorter than when you started, so you pick the 76 year old Argentinean, and all of a sudden you've got a Pope that it would seem at
first glance doesn't fit a prophecy, but you've had to go to the "ends of the earth" to find him.
I say "seem at first glance" because I also think that when God gets an idea in his head, he can become quite stubborn.
Anyways, just my current thinking, I'll probably change my mind in a few days after I've thought about it a bit more.
