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.

The March 12 to 13, 2013 conclave that elected Pope Francis (#267), on the 5th ballot, was my ‘the next pope‘ election — the conclave that was the subject of both my ‘The Next Pope‘ books (published in 2010 and 2011). Much of my papal blogging, starting in 2008, also was about the ‘next pope’ and hence the ‘next conclave’ — which happened to be this one in March.

So it would have been incongruous if I did not update my ‘conclave’ book to include the 2013 conclave. Given that I already had most of the information already in my head or documented somewhere on a blog post, it wasn’t like I needed to do much research. So I decided to do an update, refresh and augment the ‘Last 9 Conclave‘ book, which I published 3 days after Benedict XVI’s (#266) announcement that he was resigning, as soon as we got back from vacation. So that is another project off the ‘to do’ list.

Ξ Documented the 2013 conclave
and updated the conclave book.
 

This book, I will, luck permitting and technology willing, bring out as a cheap paperback. So, that is another new project.

My Job As The Lightning Rod For ‘The Next Pope’ Is Done. I Did Pretty Damn Well Too! Got Everything BUT Name RIGHT.

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.
