    Who is Pope Benedict?

    TigerHawk has an exclusive interview with a man who advised then Cardinal Ratzinger, and know the man fairly well. It is an excellent insight into Benedict's nature. Read it all.

    This part caught TigerHawk's eye:
    6. What those of us here see is not what holy men and God sees. Today, the West, especially tired old Europe sees militant Islam as its huge concern. From the Church's perspective, these are millions of potential converts. I think that just as the Huns, Goths, Franks, and Normans of old threatened Christendom and became part of it, so too -- in 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 years -- will we see the rebirth of Catholic Europe. And just as the man we call St. Benedict worked to make this so, so too Benedict XVI hopes to be God's instrument to make it so in the future.
    I suspect that one thing that the new Pope will try and accomplish will be a rapprochement with other Christian Churches, especially the Orthodox Churches. If Christianity is to survive in Europe it will have to be united, division among Christians is one thing that greatly helped the Muslim Arab armies in their initial conquests.
