Habemus Papam

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar … Matthew Arnold as cited by Pat Buchanan in a recent article @ http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2013/02/12/a-godly-man-in-an-ungodly-age/

It’s Habemus Papam time again. I should like to cast my vote for the doctrinally-solid Cardinal Burke.  And Pope Burke could then begin to purge the Church of the likes of Biden, Pelosi, etc., etc.; and thereby revitalize Holy Mother Church by tossing out the rotten apples.
