Interesting in light of recent events, though the selection process of a new pope seems very complicated.
Rolfe himself converted to the Catholic church but was rejected by the priesthood, he even shortened his first name to Fr. Hadrian the seventh seems like Rolfe's fantasy of the way he wished his life had been.
