Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

Idle speculations

Now that the shock of the Pope's resignation is wearing off, many have turned to speculating on who the next Pope will be. I find it much more entertaining to speculate on what name the next Pope will choose for himself. I am hoping for something with a little more pizzazz than the dreary old names of our recent pontiffs. Here is my top ten wish list of papal names:

10. Pope Dwayne I
9. Pope Sicle I
8. Pope LeRoi I
7. Pope Tex I
6. Pope Alfalfa I
5. Pope Elton I
4. Pope Darth I
3. Pope Shaquan I
2. Pope Elvis I
1. Pope Thor I
