Cardinal Ouellet says that possibility of papacy 'makes me pray'
Catholic World News - March 04, 2013
Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, suggested that other candidates are better suited to the papacy, but “I have to be ready.”
The Canadian prelate, who is regularly listed among the leading papabili, told a CBC broadcast audience that “I think a certain number of people have more chance of being elected than me.” But he admitted that he “can’t not think about the possibility.” Cardinal Ouellet—who in the past said that it would be a “nightmare” to be elected Pontiff—said that “it makes me reflect, it makes me pray, it makes me somewhat afraid.”
