Mike Rogers quotes
We do acknowledge that we arrested a contractor who had been employed at the NSA.
Let's start thinking about how do we figure out how we make this work.
I think that it's a moment of great anticipation and hope for our church because it's a moment where we can start again – we can do something new. So every conclave is a moment of great hope – and this one in particular. As we can see behind us (in the Vatican), everyone is waiting and hoping.
As somebody who isn't European, I think one of the things we see are examples of people who could bring great hope to the church. So I don't think that Europe necessarily should be ruled out as a place where the man who is called to lead us could next be from.
They certainly are. I think the men from North America have a lot of qualities a lot of us would hope for in a pope. I don't think anybody expects that the pope will be from North America.
I think the Holy Spirit can still work through these moments where men might not agree. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, because what we're doing now is a process of discernment inside the chapel. It's not an election, it's not a political process, it's not a democracy. These men are invoking God's help to pick that person and that they disagree means they have a chance to pray and discern where God's will is on these important things.
