Change how pope is elected


To the Editor:
I’d like to see a change in the way a pope is chosen. You will never get strong leadership by selecting a pope from 115 tired, worn-out old men.
I think it should be open to all the bishops of the Church.
Limit the job to those ages 60 and under.
R.W. Handley
