Catholic pals of mine, clear something up for me: the Pope can’t quit, can he? I’m only asking because apparently he missed Mass today and seems to be nearly dead and I feel sorry for him.
I mean, for reals. Airline pilots have mandatory retirement at age 60, but we can’t phase the pope out at, say, 80? Are you really telling me that the spiritual leader of EVERY CATHOLIC IN THE WORRRRLD has to keep on going and going and going like some kind of demented Energizer Bunny? Is this wise? He’ll be crushed to death by his hat soon. Have mercy.
