This has more to it than just "declining health". A Pope hasn't resigned since the fuging middle ages. Every Pope declines in health and dies in office.

Regardless, we will get to see three popes in under a decade. There are many generations that didn't see three popes in a lifetime.

It's happened more recently than the Pope resigning.

First thing that ran through my mind was that there was more to it. Yea hes old, but first time in 600 years? idk. Then again I'm not a Catholic and I have no idea how any of that stuff works.

New pope, you know what that means- time for the betting lines.

http://www.paddypowe...744&AFF_ID=3409

11/4 Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson (Ghana)
3/1 Cardinal Marc Ouellet (Canada)
4/1 Cardinal Francis Arinze (NIgeria)

Dude from Ghana was the favorite last time I believe, though to be honest any of the 3 current favorites would be crazy (a canadian or african pope?)

Richard Dawkins also a big underdog at 666/1 :D

Pope Celestine V exercised his right to abdicate in 1294. So 719 years, to be exact.

So do Catholics get a free pass now until they replace this guy?
