The cardinals chose a new pope.
Cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church elected Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany Tuesday as the new pope to succeed John Paul II, reaching an early agreement on the second day of voting.
He took the name of Benedict XVI.
What I liked about this article was a quote from Pope Benedict:
An adult faith does not follow the waves of fashion and the latest novelty.
Very cool. I wonder how long until our faith is an adult faith.
