So, here’s something different. One of my friends posted a “Fantasy Conclave” link on Facebook. Basically, the rules are:
1. You predict who you think will be elected the next Pope.
2. You predict which day they will be elected.
3. You predict what name they will take.
Its free to register and if you are the lucky winner, you get money. Score! You win if you are the only person to get part 1 right, if multiple people get part 1, then they go to part 2, if multiple people get part 2, then part 3, and if multiple people get part 3 then they go to a tie breaker. That tie breaker would be who submitted their guess first. Check out http://fantasyconclave.com/ to sign up for that. My guess was Cardinal Burke, on Day 5 and he’ll take Leo. Go ahead. Steal it. I’ll still win the ultimate tie breaker.
Another thing I saw on the Twitter feed was “Adopt a Cardinal”. This way we can pray for the Cardinals in the upcoming conclave. You are randomly assigned a Cardinal to pray for. I was assigned…
|Timothy Cardinal Dolan of New York|
He looks pretty happy to know that I am praying for him. You can sign up to adopt your own Cardinal at http://adoptacardinal.org/.
Since these items were all found using social media, I suppose now would be good time to mention that I do have a Facebook page for the blog. I’m debating getting an email address just for this blog, in case people have questions, want to point something out to me, etc, etc. I’m not sure what would be a good name for the account, so maybe we can have a contest? I don’t know. Leave a comment down below with your thoughts!
