Posters in Rome tout Cardinal Turkson's papal candidacy

Catholic World News - March 01, 2013

Scores of large posters have begun to appear on walls around the city of Rome, urging the election of Cardinal Peter Turkson as the next Pope.

The posters, similar to those used by political candidates, feature a portrait of the prelate from Ghana and an appeal: "Vote Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson."

No one has taken credit producing the posters. It is extremely unlikely that Cardinal Turkson himself was involved.

Cardinal Turkson, who has been serving as president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, has been listed by many media commentators as one of the leading papabili.

    Posters, huh? That doesn't show much faith in the Holy Spirit, does it? We are sticking with old fashioned prayer, and will let the Italians handle the Posters and PR while the secular media advises the conclave on the qualifications for the new Holy Father. And Jesus wept!
