The Next Pope "From the glory of the olive"

This blogger lays it out thus:

"The next pope is de gloria olivae ("from the glory of the olive"). You can view the odds on who this might be. Symbolically, the olive could be a reference to any (or none) of the following:
the Jewish race (for which the olive branch is an ancient symbol)
Jesus' prophecy on the Mount of Olives
Peace-making
Dark skin
Italy, Greece and/or Spain"
