Cardinal Pell: Benedict didn't want to be Pope

Sydney Archbishop Cardinal George Pell says Pope Benedict XVI did not want the Catholic Church's top job but was elected because he was the most qualified.
"He didn't want the job. I'm quite convinced that that was genuine. He is a genuine man of the spirit ... he will clearly and consistently call up Christ, call up the loyalty within the Church and he'll do that in ways and tones that are new and interesting."
