Boston Herald Is the Papal of Record


The Boston Globe has a nice Page One piece about the Great Mentioner throwing Sean O’Malley’s hood into the bakeoff for a new Pontiff, but our feisty local tabloid goes all Poparazzi over the prospect.

Page One:

Oh, yes – don’t forget the editorial:

A Boston pope — really

Here in the Hub of the Universe it goes without saying that the Roman Catholic archbishop of Boston would be a contender for pope — just as the Patriots always start the season as contenders for the Super Bowl and our best politicians inevitably are contenders for the White House.

There is a certain irony, however, in that Cardinal Sean O’Malley is being mentioned in Vatican circles as the most likely American contender in part because he is the antithesis of papal opulence. He’s Capuchin sandals, not Prada loafers.


Ouch. The Papal seat isn’t even cold and already they’re piling on God’s Rottweiler.

Sic transit gloria mundi and all that.
