Fantastical Roman Predictions

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

As much as I would celebrate the world getting to better know the holy Cardinal Burke or Archbishop Dolan, those papal predictions you posted, Mike, seem to be an American in Rome’s daydreams.

And I think the fantasy pontiff from the U.S. in this instance is actually Cardinal O’Malley of Boston — cappucino? Cardinal Seán is, of course, a Capuchin.

I hope no one is putting money on any of the three though. 

Perhaps tomorrow we can play fantasy White House? Most plausible presidents not allowed.
