Once the cardinals select the new pope, the real decision-making begins: That pope will have to settle on a new name.
Pope Benedict XVI says in a new book that condoms can be justified for male prostitutes seeking to stop the spread of HIV, a stunning comment for a church criticized for its opposition to condoms and for a pontiff who has blamed them for making the AIDS crisis worse.
"If he chose that name, Pius, that would be a real surprise," Mr. Portier said, in the CTV News report. "To choose the name Pius would be to look back. It would be kind of scary to me and I think it would be scary to a lot of people."
"In the Bible, when you get a new job from God, you pick a new name or you're given a new name, and that's the [same] idea — they feel they've chosen to do this very weighty job and they need a name that will sort of help them and inspire them," said William Portier, the chair of Catholic theology at the University of Dayton, in a CTV News report.
