Breaking news about the current Pope stepping down; a move the Vatican hasn't seen since the Middle Ages as the Pope typically serves until death.  I'm attaching the Yahoo! article here in case you'd like to read it in full.  Anyone else think the caca's about to hit the proverbial fan once this Pope has some time to get himself to a safe place? Hmmmm.

The article was very revealing as to the abilities of this supposed "spiritual leader." The following quote made me think of the Bible reading this past week when Jesus referred to the Pharisees and Sadducees as "blind guides" in Matthew 15: 14.  Check this out:

"He confronted his own country's past when he visited the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.
Calling himself "a son of Germany", he prayed and asked why God was silent when 1.5 million victims, most of them Jews, died there during World War Two.
Ratzinger served in the Hitler Youth during World War Two when membership was compulsory. He was never a member of the Nazi party and his family opposed Adolf Hitler's regime."
To sincere servants of God, the answer to this question is no mystery.  If you would like to learn why there's so much suffering on earth and if God is truly blind to it, please click here.  As a side note, I'd like to add that there were thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses who were affected by the same war but with one large difference from the Pope.  When Germany said military service was compulsory, they refused and preferred a concentration camp rather than compromise their standards.


  1. I heard one News "head" saying that he will have to go into seclusion and not be seen because he may 'disrupt' the authority of the new pope.

    there are so many 'boards' lighting up with some kind of old 'prophecies' made by somebody called St. Malachy who (allegedly) predicted a whole line of popes and that this new one is suppose to be the last.

  2. Frankly, I don't play into that whole "prophecy" bit. The only prophecies I've ever seen come true are ones found in the Bible. Besides, aren't we sick of these crazy prophecies? Didn't we hear enough of them last December?!

  3. It's been interesting hearing people at work talking about this. I overheard one therapist say, "They keep talking about how the next pope should be from here or there. It almost seems like it's more political than anything." Ya think? Like I said to T.J., if the leadership from the pope were truly from God, those conversations about "well, he needs to be from a South American country next because that is were 25% (or whatever it is) of the Catholic population is from there and they need to be represented" would never come up. God didn't make countries, and he doesn't prefer one race or nation over another, so neither where the pope is from nor which people are most represented matters.
