It is the definitive insider’s guide to Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C, New York City and Philadelphia in September 2015. Check it out. Amazon has the descriptive blurbs so I won’t regurgitate them here.

Did a lot of research for this book and that, as with some of my other pope books (e.g., Popes and the Tale of their Names), is what sets it apart. Lots of information that is not common knowledge. I enjoy the research! This book, like so many of my others, was basically an excuse for me to do the research. I don’t see a point of doing research if you don’t share it with folks.

This, in the end, proved to be a long book. 170 pages, 7″ x 10″, in paperback form and 213 pages as an eBook.

Last 10 Posts …” as a $0.99 Kindle eBook — May 9, 2013.


For those who like me do not like eBooks.

This, as you would demand, has my trademark tight formatting and the well laid out tables.

Given the printing costs this is the cheapest that I can offer it at.

Yes, Bergoglio WAS on my published ‘top 10’ list in ‘The Next Pope 2011’, page 4. That is indisputable.

So, lets go through what I did get right:

1/ I did list Jorge Mario Bergoglio as one of my ‘top 10’, though he was my last. But, better than those that did not have him at all in their lists. Proof: pages 4 & 29 of ‘The Book‘.

2/ I said on December 6, 2010, I said: “The Next Pope Is Also Likely To Be Over 75”. Proof: this post & page 7 of ‘The Book‘.

3/ On April 20, 2010, I said: “The Next Pope: Non-European, Non-Curial With ‘Clean Hands”. Proof: this post & page 11 of ‘The Book‘.

4/ I adamantly maintained that the next pope will not be from Africa, Asia or the U.S.A. Proof: this ‘pigs will fly’ post at a minimum & page 12 of ‘The Book‘.

5/ I was beyond categorical that the next pope will not be ‘Peter anything‘. Proof: this post as a start & page 221 of ‘The Book‘.

6/ I did foresee that the new pope might assume a brand new name. Proof: page 226 of ‘The Book‘.

Find me anybody else who got as much right … in published, verifiable form.

Yes, the 2nd Kindle book in 4 days, but this is the last. In this ebook I included 15 FAQs: the ones most asked of me. Also provide a list of all the ‘officers’ for the 2013 conclave plus their duties. Yes, some of the content is borrowed from ‘The Next Pope 2011‘. As with ‘The Last 9 Conclaves: 1903 to 2005’ the express intent of this ebook is to provide electronic content for those that was reference matter on their Smart Phones or Pads — given that the ‘The Next Pope 2011‘ is not available electronically, and will not be available electronically. I priced it to coincide with the correct sequence number of the new pope: #267; hence U.S. $2.67.

While, of course, it was opportunistic, my real motives was to make SOME of the contents of ‘The Next Pope 2011‘ available as an eBook and do so at a cheap price. I will never publish ‘The Next Pope 2011’ as an ebook. It is a large format book. So what I am trying to do is to provide some of its content, complete and self-contained, as Kindle ebooks. This, for those familiar with the book, is ‘Appendix C’ in its entirety, with a stripped down ‘Appendix A’. I wrote ‘Appendix C’ in 2009 and spent a whole year writing it — which by my standards is a long time. People have enjoyed that Appendix. So, here it is as a cheap eBook. My wife, who helped format it, is giving me grief for not pricing it higher.

So What Will Ex-Pope Ratzinger Do? I Think That Will Have To Be His Name. He Can’t Be Benedict XVI Once He Is Emeritus.

Kind of funny, in a sad way, to papal historians like me. Another well known pope to resign: not once BUT twice. Benedict ‘3-term’ IX (#146, #148 & #151). This will blacken the name ‘Benedict’ for a long time.

So what do you call an ex-pope, other than ‘loser’? He can’t carry on being Benedict XVI. That was his papal name. He has to Ratzinger. But, what Ratzinger. Pope Emeritus Ratzinger?

Where will he live. Rome? Italy? Germany? Elba? Or will he move to the U.S.?

Yes, I am a cynic. Benedict IX resigned for the first time BECAUSE he, around 25 at the time, wanted to get married. Will Benedict finally marry Ingrid Stampa?

What will the ex-Pope do during the conclave? Will he attend the inauguration?

Why did he spurn God’s will? When 6 year olds get killed everybody says ‘God’s Will’, they are going home to God. So what about the pope. Didn’t God just want to ask him to come home? This to me violates God’s will.
