Pope on the horizon

As the Cardinals meet to decide when to start and who they feel might be the best Pope, the world waits. We, as Baptists, may not cling to every puff of smoke that leaves the smokestack at the Vatican, but we do need to care about who the next Pope will be. Will he be one who speaks for the lowly, the downtrodden, the outcast? Will he be one who points people to living godly lives? Will he be one who deals with the problems the Catholic church finds itself in today? Will he stand for the truths of the word?

No, we don't agree with all the Catholic church believes, but a Pope who will speak truth to power can be a huge help in our world.

Who will he be, what will he do? Let us pray he is a man who follows God with all that he is and all that he has.
