Unlikely>>Could the next pope be Arab? The Vatican’s role in the Mideast

Unlikely>>Could the next pope be Arab? The Vatican’s role in the Mideast | Syriac | Scoop.it
The competition and speculations over who would be the next Vatican’s chief have been floating around since Monday, when Pope Benedict XVI stunned the world and its over one billion Catholics by announcing his retirement.

 

The competition and speculations over who would be the next Vatican’s chief have been floating around since Monday, when Pope Benedict XVI stunned the world and its over one billion Catholics by announcing his retirement.

The 85-year-old German pontiff said he took the decision with full freedom, due to his “advanced age” and failing strength of “mind and body.” He would officially be stepping down as head of the Catholic Church on Feb. 28.

 

Benedict XVI, Pope since 2005, has become the first to resign since Gregory XII in 1415, and the first to have done so willingly since Celestine V in 1294.

Having no one to present his “resignation” to, Benedict’s resolution to retire instigated a debate within the Church itself. 

Legally, the Pope can retire if he so chooses; the Code of Canon Law, the law that rules the Catholic Church, states: “If it should happen that the Roman Pontiff resigns his office, it is required for validity that he makes the resignation freely and that it be duly manifested, but not that it be accepted by anyone.” 

However, the Successor of St. Peter is expected to remain in office until his death. Benedict’s predecessor, Pope John Paul II has consistently said that he will serve “as long as the Lord desires,” and he remained in position despite his deteriorating health, until he deceased in 2005.

 

Amongst the 117 cardinals eligible to enter the secretive conclave to elect Benedict's successor, Lebanese Patriarch Bechara Boutros al-Rai, head of the Maronite Church, an Eastern Catholic Syriac Church that had affirmed its communion with Rome since 1180 A.D.

 

“Pope Benedict organized and presided the Middle East Synod held in Rome in 2010.

“The Synod provided a unique opportunity for Middle East Christians to share their hopes and concerns with the Vatican, and therefore the world.”

According to Sayegh, the Pope was “very much preoccupied by the huge threats that Christians in the Arab region, whether in Iraq or Occupied Palestine or other countries, are facing.”

The Vatican is the sole state that deals with international relations with no interests, said Sayegh. “They preach for equality, non-violence, democracy, freedom, and human rights.”

 

Last week, Lebanese Patriarch al-Rai’s visit to Damascus where he presided a mass in a country where the popular uprising has left tens of thousands killed since March 2011, had instigated lots of criticism, and many called his move a huge faux-pas.

“The Vatican takes a severe stand against dictatorships and oppressing leaders,” declared Daoud al-Sayegh. “These positions were clear throughout history, and we all remember the famous speech of Jean Paul II in the U.N. criticizing dictatorships.”

“It is not true that the Vatican believes that dictators’ regimes protect the Christians, or the minorities in the Arab world, and in this particular matter there is a big divergence between the Pope and the Vatican and some of the Christian leaders in the Levant.”

 

Could the next Pope be Arab? By law, any cardinal in the conclave is a voting member and eligible to be the next Pope. So, technically, yes. 

Nevertheless, very few analyses have favored this possibility, except for the 300 fans that joined a newly created Facebook page that promotes Lebanese Patriarch Rai for popery.

I don't think there is enough trust between Christians and Arabs yet to choose an Arab/Muslim Pope, despite their being Christians in Muslim countries. Sadly, most Christians are persecuted in Muslim countries so I don't know if we can ever develop enough trust.
