The Coming Papal Sweepstakes
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892
Died: January 16, 1986
Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

The advanced age (78 this month) and failing health of Pope Paul VI - Supreme Pontiff of the 650 million-member Roman Catholic Church have prompted widespread speculation in Catholic circles about the coming papal succession. Vatican specialists acknowledge that the next pope-electing conclave will be the most important and encounter perhaps the most difficulty of any conclave in the last 400 years. Its decision will affect both Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Pope Paul - now in his 13th year as pontiff - is said to be suffering from arthritis, pernicious anemia, and possibly eyen leukemia, though no one outside his closest circle knows the exact state of his health. Rumors of his possible resignation persist, though some observers feel he would not step down unless completely incapacitated. The only pontiff in history to voluntarily resign was Pope Celestine V in 1294.
