Hope all is doing well. I know there was already a thread about Selecting A new Pope but this is specific to whether or not a Diocesan Bishop is allowed to be nominated to become Pope.
H.G. Bishop Youssef SUS Diocesehttp://suscopts.org/press/2012/apr/28/can-a-diocesan-bishop-be-nominated-for-pope/
but a church father said this
“Neither sword, nor fire, nor exile, nor imprisonment disturbs me. I will not do what should not be done and I will not adopt what I have excommunicated in my own writings. I wrote that a bishop or metropolitan could not become a patriarch. How could I excommunicate myself by legalising today what I have forbidden yesterday, and by accepting what the holy fathers before me refused to accept.”
Abba Khail, Forty-sixth Patriarch of Alexandria AD 743-767.
What is really supposed to happen?
