Introducing the Pope Name Predictor
We don't know who the new pope will be but we can guess at his new name
March 13, 2013
It's not entirely serious, but the people at CatholicVote.org, a popular and sometimes light hearted US Cathoiic blog have developed the Pope Name Predictor. As the title suggests, it enables you to take your shot at predicting what name the newly elected pope will choose.
All you have to do is go online and make your prediction. You could even win an iPad Mini for your effort. The only stipulation is that, before you cast your vote, you have to agree to pray for the next pope - whoever it is.
At the moment, the most popular choices are:
John Paul III
