We all know the next pope will have to come in and whip people back into shape. There will be PR issues. There will be skeletons FB bury. There will be people to bury as well.
That's the next pope will be a conservative until he can clean things up before allowing the church to continue with a clean slate regardless or which direction the flock wants to go down.
Think of the second coming of John Paul II with muscles.
The church, if he is successful, could see a renaissance in ideas, optimism, and trust from the people.
It will take up the vast majority of this pope's attention and time. The pope will have to have the stamina and stomach for it.
