So when are the televised Pope debates?! Is it moderated or is it more Fear Factor style competetion for the pointy Hat?

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.


1978 was known in catholicism as "the year of three popes"

Pope Paul V died, replaced by John Paul I (who died in his sleep just 33 days into his papacy) followed by John Paul II
