Chi entra papa in conclave, esce cardinale

The mainstream media reported that Mario Grech is being mentioned as a potential successor to Pope Francis. It is being said that he a good choice, a middle man between the conservatives and the radicals. But as an old Roman saying goes, Chi entra papa in conclave, esce cardinale – or who enters as pope in a conclave, comes out cardinal. The only time when this did not happen was in the election of Eugenio Pacelli in 1939. The rumours were that Pacelli would become pope and this is what happened. He became Pope Pius XII.
