Final Move - Checkmate.

It was not foresight that made me write an article on professor Joseph Ratzinger in the early 60's, only interest in an intellectual theologian. I was a 17-year old high school student then, writing articles for a news magazine in Stuttgart. If I remember it right my report on the pugnacious Catholic came to the conclusion that this man would possibly change his rigid old-fashioned church for the better. O boy, how wrong I was! Nevertheless I never have been deceived by the rustic appearance of Pope Benedict XVI. Being a brilliant intellectual strategist was what made him become Pope. I doubt his health problems are the main reason for his resignation. It may as well be an ingenious stunt to thwart a Vatican plot or a desperate defense against intrigues meant to prevent him from influencing his succession. Most probably his opponents were caught totally unaware by this last move.

    It is the Vatican delivering us the best crime thrillers. Since they invented their own calender.
