In another article by John A. Zukowski, he quotes Father Thomas Dailey, OSFS, professor of theology at DeSales, on the name the new pope selected. Dailey said the reputation of the new pope stems from his past church positions as a defender of church doctrine. "It didn't surprise me that he didn't pick John Paul III because it was out of respect for John Paul II," said Dailey. "Benedict is the champion of monastic life whose motto is to work and to pray. That seemed to speak to Cardinal Ratzinger, who described himself as a simple working man. It means that in a world that seems so practical, there is a need to pray and to be spiritual."
