We are sorta wondering though .... you've seen the present TV advertising campaign across North America, pleading with Catholics to 'come home'. Is the Catholic religion suffering a loss of Christians? Is the 10% contribution not enough anymore? Perhaps the Vatican is facing a cash-crunch too, like Italy, Spain and Greece, and they want that cash base to come home again? Did Pope Benedict fail his job evaluation?
Did the Cardinals make him an offer he couldn't refuse? Did Marlon Brando as a hologram make an ominous appearance? Or worse, Tony Soprano, aka James Gandolfini. The Pope said he will retire to his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo in the hills outside of Rome. OMG is he sending us a signal?

The candidates will be surfacing soon.
