The pope retiring has about as much effect on the church as Pepsi Co hiring a new technology officer.
Strib's and other media outlets hyperbole about the chaos this brings to the church is ridiculous. How is a peaceful resignation more chaotic for an organization than an 85 year old pope dropping over from a heart attack suddenly? Looks like more anti-Catholic bias with trying to invent the news where there is not much to report. Of course it's a big deal, but if they have a new pope in place in 30 days, that would suggest a well oiled plan for succession.
Donald Trump will make a formal announcement that he is throwing his hat into the papal election after the state of the union.
