Catholic doctrine experts on picking next pope

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Grant Gallicho, associate editor of Commonweal journal; and Father Robert Keighron, co-host of The Catholic Guy show, weigh in on the likely successors of Pope Benedict XVI.

"It's not likely. The guys in the room don't like to give more power to the greatest power in the world," said Gallicho.

"We don't really know what will happen until all the cardinals get together. There are a lot of names thrown out,"

Cardinals from Ghana, Canada, Austria and Italy are rumored to be among those likely to be selected.

"The church is growing in the global south. Do you want that face? The sense is do you want to give the papacy back to someone who knows how to hold the reigns of power, someone from Europe," said Gallicho.

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
