Barack Obama is the best possible candidate to fill the seat of the true world political authority called for by Benedicit XVI

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama meet with Pope Benedict XVI, Friday, July 10, 2009, at the Vatican.

The first possible candidate to fill the seat of the true world political authority requested by Pope Benedict XVI would be Barack Obama. This papal political appointment will have universal authority over all nations. This appointment will have the following responsiblities:

To manage the global economy
To revive economies hit by the crisis
To bring about integral and timely disarmament
To guarantee the protection of the environment
To regulate migration

'Furthermore, such an authority would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all, regard for justice, and respect for rights. Obviously it would have to have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties, and also with the coordinated measures adopted in various international forums. Without this, despite the great progress accomplished in various sectors, international law would risk being conditioned by the balance of power among the strongest nations. The integral development of peoples and international cooperation require the establishment of a greater degree of international ordering, marked by subsidiarity, for the management of globalization. They also require the construction of a social order that at last conforms to the moral order, to the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres, as envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations.' Benedict XVI
