True story about Arinze

One of the sisters in my community told me this story. Her mother took a trip to a shrine in Mexico with a group from her parish, and Cardinal Arinze was on the plane. They were interested to see this African cardinal, and one of the ladies said to him, "We're all praying that you'll be the next Pope!" To which he replied, "Pray for something else!"

Thank you for posting such a delightful story. I join my prayers with yours and all Catholics that the Holy Spirit provide us with a new leader that is right for our times.
