Actually, over a longish period there have been 2 (or even 3?) popes around (in Avignon, southern France and in different places in Italy -- why should a pope have to live in Rome anyway?). Having only one pope is just so peaceful economic modern times...
A question there: Why is some pope higher than a saint? Because the pope appoints them? Well, then maybe whoever is a pope should do so.
Consider that real saints have a strong, certain, definite tendency towards having been dead for a longish period of time. If you take that into account, maybe saints should be allowed to become Angels, Cherubs, Archangels, Seraphs, you name them.
Assuming that Vroom would be pope and assuming that there is only one pope ( not highlander ) does that mean he'd have to become senile or be pushing up dasies before someone else wouuld become pope? ;)
