A 'benediction' is a blessing. Ratzinger chose "Benedict" after Benedict XV, who was a peacemaking pope in the early 20th century.

I don't belive they really starve them. Although in the past there where some times when the conclave went on for a very long time and certin things where done to 'incentivese' the cardnels into voting for someone a little bit faster.

Ratzingers new name is Benedict XVI. John Paul II was the name of the former pope. His name is not a part of the new pope's selected name.

Im supprised your fellow students and teacher was unaware Rudy as all this happened prior to 1pm yesterday. Plenty of time for anyone whom listens to the radio or watches any kind of TV to have seen or heard a report.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Benedict_XVI

Quote:
The choice of the name Benedict is also significant. The new Pope's birthday is on the 16 April and that day is the feast of Saint Benedict Joseph Labre (26 March 1748 - 16 April 1783), also known as the Holy Pilgrim. His first name was already Joseph and together with Benedict, which he has now assumed, his Christian namesake is now complete. In addition the previous Pope Benedict XV was seen as a conciliator who calmed the disputes between modernist and traditionalist factions with the Church, and the adoption of the name Benedict has been seen as a sign that Benedict XVI has similar goals. Additionally, Der Spiegel reports on an interview with cardinal Meisner, usually regarded as close to Ratzinger, stating that he chose Benedict because of Benedict XV who "did much for peace in the world". [1] (http://www.spiegel.de/panorama/0,1518,352346,00.html)

Some see Benedict as a traditionalist, others as merely orthodox, but almost all observers agree that he is a staunch defender of the Church. He is an opponent of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, euthanasia, and abortion.

UM...does it bother anyone that he was a Nazi, or that you don't hear the fact that he was a Nazi mentioned anywhere (atleast I don't)

From what I gathered he was apart of Hitlers youth something or other... but yes I heard he was a Nazi. He had to have been in his early teens- and a lot of people were forced to be apart of Hitlers army

But I don't know all the facts behind it
