Choose Your Pope

This is quite funny (couldn't embed the code, though) :

"For the first time since 2005, we get to play another round of everybody's favorite ecclesiastical game show!"

Oh, yes...perhaps they should have made Gianfranco Ravasi one of the bachelors instead of, say, Peter Turkson? Cardinal Turkson seems to me too ambitious for the office.

On a more serious note, should Lutherans pray about this (as a parishioner asked me)? I think we might pray that the cardinals elect a Pope who will have the will and courage to "clean house" for the sake of the innocent victims. We might also pray for a Pope who would be open to the Lutheran reform, beginning perhaps with the abolition of the mandatory vow of celibacy for the Roman priesthood.
