AS PRE-CONCLAVE talks begin, March should see the election of a new Pope.

Caught up in what appears to be scandal after scandal, the Catholic Church is in desperate need of a leader who can reassure the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics.

In his opinion piece today, Irish priest Fr Tony Flannery isn’t holding out much hope, believing that the Vatican “militates against change” and that the new Pope will be “rendered ineffective”.

So today we ask: Do you think the next Pope can help reinvigorate the Catholic Church?


Poll Results:

No (1296)
It depends on who's picked (1210)
I don't know (346)
Yes (123)
