Don't misunderstand me. I think more people should study Latin due to its academic significance. But Jesus was all about walking with the people versus talking over their heads. You can't connect with people if you don't speak their language.
Also, don't misunderstand me in that I greatly value the wisdom of the elderly. I don't care if the pope continues until he dies or resigns but I respect his decision to go. And, unlike most pundits, I wasn't at all surprised by his resignation due to his scandal wracked papacy and a possible pending indictment in the International Criminal Court due to his role in the pedophile mess.
The pope admits he's out of touch with today's world and can't keep pace. Are any of the Cardinals in touch with it and will the ones who aren't elect one who is?
