Rome, March 4 - A Spanish cardinal said Monday that
the Catholic Church needs a man of God, not an administrator, as
its new leader.
"The new pope must be a man of God.... not a technocrat,"
Carlos Amigo Vallejo, archbishop emeritus of Seville, said
Monday as he and his peers gathered in Rome to prepare to elect
a new pope.
"There are no favourites," he added. "Everything is
possible and nothing is sure".
Vallejo spoke only days after Benedict XVI stepped down as
pontiff last week, meaning conclave will be needed to elect his
successor.
Cardinals are meeting this week to get a feel for the
potential candidates and set a date for the election to begin.
Vallejo said the media has been clamouring for a certain
kind of pope, elected at a quickly, but cardinals should ignore
that outside pressure.
