I hope he's a Thomist.

He may not be black, but people should be ready for a non-European pope. The Church is the strongest (population-wise, anyway) in the southern hemisphere. Though southerners don't represent much of the cardinalate, they do represent much of the Church militant.

LOTR references... GO!

A Southron will get the stewart's seat.
Doubt he'll be a strong Thomist (if that means exclusively tied to Aquinas) - things really have moved on.

Traditional Catholics - I hope he's CATHOLIC


Revised:

Traditional Catholics - I hope he's unforgivably Catholic
Haha there is humor in change - as of February 28th everyone around the world will be a sede vacantist.

Regardless of how the future election turns out, God's will be done in our times Smile

We will not be sedevacantists after Pope Benedict's resignation takes effect on February 20.  We will simply be going through an interregnum, the period between two papacies.  We last had an interregnum when Pope John Paul II died.

Um, what do you think a sede vacante is?

Moreover, what do you think sedevacantists believe?  You've just described it.

They believe that the Petrine office has been empty since whatever arbitrary Pope they favour died, ignoring subsequent popes - even though Benedict XVI is still quite visibly there right now, and will be til his resignation.
