Weaken the chances of Italian Pope!!
I don't understand, I was taught the Holy Spirit "inspires" the Cardinals who to choose for the next pope?
Its obvious there are many cliques of cardinals within the vatican and the Holy Spirit has no say what so ever.
What truth is one to believe?

That men can ignore the inspiration of the Holy Spirit should not be a surprise. Inspiration does not mean become the robots of God. Pope John XXIII is the perfect example of the Holy Spirit trumping the will of men. He was elected as a caretaker pope, to just fill in and die so that in the meantime an agreement could be made as to who to elect next. John XXIII then calls Vatican Council II. No one saw that coming from him. When travel to Rome was much more difficult than it is today the Italians were voted as pope since mostly Italians were the ones making it to the conclave. A global Church, cardinals from around the globe, and modern transportation makes the election of nonItalians more of a possibility.
