Pope Feels He May Not Be Around Long-Term

From the heap o'links, things that make me go "hmmmm" category:

"My pontificate will be brief"

…"I have a feeling my pontificate will be brief," the 78-year-old told Mexico's Televisa channel.
"Four or five years, I don't know. Two years have already gone by.

"It is a vague feeling I have that the Lord chose me for a short mission. I am always open to that possibility."

So, is he getting in big things like a year-long mercy jubilee during his presumed little window of opportunity?

Well, he sure won't set the record for shortest reign, right?

In any case, this tends to affirm my theory that Benedict is still the real Pope, and this guy is just a decoy, a lightning rod. Canny Catholics.

(I pray for merciful forgiveness if my humor at Pop Francis's expense is deemed unpleasantly irreverent.)

Speaking of reverent humor, I thought this Rev. Fun cartoon was funny. (H/t FenelonSpoke on Ace of Spades; Fen is sort-of the resident chaplain for that grimy locker room.)
