Last blog before my flight

Amy Welborn linked to this story , and focused on the prospect of a papal resignation. But she didn't mention the most interesting part.

Maradiaga, who is considered a potential papal candidate, said a "Latin-American pope would give an huge impetus to a new evangelism, a new missionary surge for the church."
He added that a Latin-American pope could play an important role in "overcoming the north-south conflict and in the battle against poverty."

Doesn't Canon Law forbid campaigning? This guy sounds an awful lot like Mitt Romney at the Salt Lake closing ceremony. He also sounds like someone who thinks "fixing the World" should come before "preparing for the next."
