The election of German Card. Joseph Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI "signals that the cardinals want to continue the strong, courageous, spiritual and pastoral leadership of Pope John Paul," said Bp. David Zubik on the day of the selection.

Pope Benedict XVI is a brilliant theologian who was very loyal to Pope John Paul II as his most trusted advisor, Bp. Zubik told The Compass in a telephone interview from Rome.

Seminarians at the North American College in Rome were "jubilant by the selection," he said. Many of the seminarians have gotten to know the new pope because he ordained many of them to the diaconate and he has paid special attention to them, Bp. Zubik said.   Full story ...
