Buenos Aires, March 25 - Argentina's other cardinal
in the conclave - Cardinal Leonardo Sandri - shrugged off any
suggestion on Monday that he might be jealous of his compatriot
and former equal, ex-cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who was
elected pope this month.
"Me jealous? To be pope means being crazy, because being
pope could only occur in the head of a madman with all the
problems there are," quipped Sandri in a radio interview in
Argentina.
Before the conclave, Sandri had been deemed by some to be
more "papabile" (likely pope) than Bergoglio, due to his age.
Sandri declared himself "extremely content" with
Bergoglio's election and wished "the best possible" for the new
pontificate.
Bergoglio's choice of name - Pope Francis - represents a
new symbol, Sandri added.
"Saint Francis is a model person who incarnates poverty and
chastity" and will provide "the roots of the Pope's spring" by
promoting a new closeness to the faithful, Sandri said.
