His 'service evaluation' will be done, just like the rest of us.

American Cardinal Timothy Dolan will not be the next Pope.
The next Pope will be European. Popes always come from Europe - that is God's will.

IF the pope was really chosen by god, why the need for multiple votes in a month-long debacle of bought votes, power plays, and back room deals? This is more like "electing" a new head of the Cosa Nostra.
As God is not here on Earth with us, God works through the College of Cardinals.

For the same reason you and I can't figure out everything else He does.

I'm not God-I don't set His schedule.
