Last year’s predictions:
1 – There will still be an indoor mask-mandate in most provinces of Italy after October 1. (Technically, yes – in certain health-care settings, including nursing homes. I’m counting it.)
2 – Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI will live through the year. (Obviously no, not all the way. He died this morning, if you haven’t heard. We pray for his soul – though I doubt he needs it.)
3 – Kyle Rittenhouse will announce lawsuits totaling over $1 billion in claims. (No.)
4 – China will not admit that it had a lab leak in Wuhan. (Yes.)
5 – There will not be a significant military event in Israel and Palestine (no lives lost). (Sadly, no.)
6 – CNN will no longer be on the air. (Sadly, no.)
7 – Google will buy Netflix. (No.)
8 – The Vatican finance trial will not be finished. (Yes.)
9 – UCLA will win March Madness. (No.)
10 – Elon Musk will officially announce a mission to Mars. (No.)
Okay. 3/10. Mediocre at best.
1 – A stalemate/compromise will be formally ratified in a ceasefire/treaty agreement between Ukraine and Russia.
2 – Northern Ireland will announce a referendum on leaving the U.K.
3 – No new American (USA) Cardinals will be named.
4 – There will be a schism in India as a result of the ongoing Syro-Malabar liturgical dispute.
5 – A B-List Hollywood actress will enter religious life.
6 – A personal friend of mine will be chosen for the episcopacy.
7 – The Pontifical Academy for Life will not have any more abortion supporters added to its membership roster.
8 – No encyclicals will be promulgated by Pope Francis.
9 – I will be able to do a planche for at least 5 seconds.
10 – The Mets will win the World Series.
Happy New Year!
