John Paul I died on September 28th & John Paul II was elected on October 16th. Both theses dates are in the Fall, therefore 1978 being known as the "summer of three Popes" is misleading. GoodDay 20:23, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
Or these dates could be in the Spring if you live in the southern hemisphere. On the whole, 'Year of Three Popes' is more descriptive. -- B.D.Mills (T, C) 04:12, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
The text of this article, as it currently stands, uses the word "pope" or "popes" no less than 51 times (out of 318 words, counting numbers as words; almost 1/6 of the words in the article are "pope"), largely because the list of years begins each name with "Pope". I would suggest removing some of the occurrences of "Pope" from the text, especially the list, as it's obvious by that point that we're talking about popes. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 10:43, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
I notice that in many places this article refers to popes "holding office". Isn't it completely correct to state that, as monarchs, popes reign? I just want to avoid needless offense. -- Pakaran 18:35, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
