An Ailing Pope Aided by Circle Of Confidants

Washington Post

"Dziwisz, 64, has the confidence to 'interpret the pope's mind,' a Vatican official said. During the lead-up to the Iraq war last winter, Vatican reporters corralled Dziwisz to ask about the pope's position. They expected him to run off and consult the pontiff, but Dziwisz replied immediately. The pope opposed the war, he said. 'Dziwisz does not feel the need to go to anyone else when he speaks,' said Allen, the author."

But that was such an easy question! I can interpret the pope's mind too: likes: polish sausage, repenting, and school vouchers. Dislikes: war, sin, and gays. Maybe I should be considered for the next pope.
