It was with great sadness that I saw the state of the Pontiff's health.
Myself and the Catholic Church differ on a great many issues and I haven't been to mass in about 5 years but you have to admire the current Pope.
Not for his policies but for the life he has led and the difficulties he has faced.
I fear however that any future Pope will continue with the age old doctrine of Conservatism.
If the Church has any chance of bringing back the "lost sheep" it must come into the 21st Century.
Allow priest's to marry and stop depriving them of the most, I would imagine, wonderful experience in the world
