Very great saint and Pope. I some people will laugh at this, but I truely believe that the next Pope we get will be a surprise it a very good sense for faithful CAtholics and Catholic tradition. He might take the name Pius, making him Pope Pius XIII (he certainly won't be Francis...or JP III or a Paul VII or John XXIV). He may be Benedict XVII, or he might pick a papal name not used in centuries...like Gregory, Boniface, Innocent, or even Gelasius. But I think he will be very much more like Benedict XVI was, very supportive of the TLM and Catholic tradition and the vesture and ceremonial of the Papacy. He might not actually celebrate the TLM himself, but he will give ever wider allowance for it even that Summorum Pontificum. With regard to Catholic thought, theology, and teaching, I think he will be more in like with the Popes named Pius, and not with JPII. Who knows who will be the next Pope.....and I think it will be very soon. I don't think a Francis Cardinal will get it. It may not even be a Cardinal......perhaps a very holy and learned Archbishop, or a monks chosen from a traditional monastery.
Perhaps I'm too much of a Historian, because those things did happen in the Middle Ages, and though unlikely now, would be real proof of the workings of the Holy Spirit in the conclave.
Pius X was a VERY great Pope, one to be immitated, not degraded. I bet we get a new Pope closer to him very soon rather than one like JPII or Benedict XVI.......and certainly not JOhn XXIII or least of all
