Tip of the Hat

(no subject)

With the death of Pope John Paul II, I brushed up on the papal prophecies attributed to St. Malachy, and last week I told charmere that if that prediction holds true they'd elect a priest from the Olivetan monks, formally known as the Order of St. Benedict. Today I learn that the guy's a Jesuit who just took the name Benedict.

Ah, obscure language prophecies. Make of them what you will.
