"Nobody expected the pope to resign at this precise moment” Mgr Joseph Befe Ateba Archbishop of Kribi Archdiocese


"Nobody expected the pope to resign at this precise moment” 
Mgr Joseph Befe Ateba
Archbishop of Kribi Archdiocese

Archbishop Msgr Joseph Befe Ateba


“The news of the resignation did not surprise me. In the canon law there are conditions that allow a pope to resign. But on the other hand it is a surprise because nobody predicted it. Nobody expected the pope to resign at this precise moment. The still to be elected pope should be someone in dialogue with this century. I believe that when a new pope comes; I don’t see how he would allow homosexuality. He should be someone opened to the world but at the same time very jealous of the heritage of the church. We have a good number of African cardinals such as the Archbishops of Kinshasa, Abuja and so on that can become first black pope. Everything is possible.”
