My first round picks are in for the Religion News Service papal brackets. I’m still not even close to publicly divulging who I’ve got going “all the way”, but I will tell you that it is one of those mentioned in the RNS Sweet Sixteen.
On a more serious note, is there “harm” in taking part in fun conclave activities like this one? I personally say, “no way”. In fact, if you stroll down to the comment boxes on that post, you’ll find the opportunity to engage in a little apologetics. Remember this is going to be a big job for all of us during the next few weeks. If you see a blatantly anti-Catholic comment, how ready are you to stand up for the truth? I personally need to take some Catholic Vitamins and work on my backbone.
