Habemus Papam!!

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger is the Catholic Church's 265th pontiff, and has taken the name Benedict XVI. I'm headed to Cologne, Germany this August for World Youth Day. Given Pope Benedict's German heritage, interest in World Youth Day 2005 has just cranked up a couple notches. Let's hope Pope Benedict will be the catalyst for a return to Christian roots among Western Europeans.
