A Few Spurts From The Conclave
People who were worried about the effort to be the next pope by former Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony will now have less to worry about. Vatican security guards have reported that they’ve taken his campaign manager Karl Rove into custody and freed dozens of altar boys who were being held captive in his hotel room.
In a related story, Mahony has suggested a new way for priests to be more closely connected with those altar boys who sometimes, literally, must give their all to their superiors. Starting next Easter, the boys will play “Hide the host”, putting it somewhere in their robes, and then a blindfolded priest will be given 24 hours to find it.
And this just in, what was thought to be the results of a first vote by the cardinals to pick a new pope turned out to be just a non-connected huge puff of smoke. The source became clear when a tour bus owned by Willy Nelson and one that belonged to Snoop Dogg were found parked side by side in the Vatican’s parking lot. So, it might be taken by some as sort of a signal from a much higher source.
