In our day, every time a pope sneezes, we have to hear about it.  In times past, there were Catholics who lived and died without having the slightest idea of who occupied the papacy.  Some popes only lasted a couple days, others made it a couple weeks, still others a couple months. 

The average Catholic living in, say, India in the third century (perhaps illiterate) probably had no idea about who was pope and wasn't all that concerned about who was pope or what he had to say on a daily basis.

Yep, that's what I always say. No doubt we live in a different world and we constantly have to adapt to our new environment.. but today I can only describe it as "Pope Frenzy." The social media is still relatively new. Maybe things will quiet down in a decade or two.
