During the next Conclave, can I vote for Michael for Pope?
Ade, Under current regulations, only if he isn't married.
Ade, only if your a member of the College of Cardinals.
I know that, but there is immoral fantasizing and then again, there is moral fantasizing. And Canon Law can be changed. Can you just imagine the First Lady of the Vatican? Mrs. Pope. LOL
VSO, Actually, you don't have to be a cardinal, or even a priest, there are just 3 qualifications to be elected Pope, Catholic (any of the 22 sui iuris Churches), male & single. Beyond that, once you are elected, then you will be ordained. Usually it is a Cardinal these days simply because they chose 1 of their own, but they are not limitted to that. So there is hope.
I know Michael - he's unmarried.As to wanting to be Pope? Well, aren't there stories of men who didn't want to be a bishop or pope, and ran off and hid to avoid the responsibility? That's kinda what Michael would do. Not only that - too many Cardinals still who wouldn't elect a guy like him.
