Shoes of the Fisherman

The Cardinals of the Catholic Church have apparently elected Cardinal Mario Bergoglio of Argentina as the new Pope.

Is it a sensible decision to elect a man of seventy six years of age to this post? How many individuals are at the top of their game or even near it at that age? What energy levels can a man of that age bring to such a position? Hopefully he will follow the example of his predecessor and hang up his mantum as soon as he realises that his mental and physical resources are not up to the task that he has given himself.
