Did MacIntyre name the pope?

Bruce Marshall speculates in an interesting aside: “As a new dark age closes in, Alasdair MacIntyre famously observed, we hope for a new St. Benedict. The former Cardinal Ratzinger surely did not choose by accident the name under which he would be pope.”

— From, “Reading the Gospels with Benedict XVI,” in First Things Oct 2011.
