The Pope is Pooped

Like everyone else, my first reaction was ...WHAT?!!  Then... Heart of Jesus gushing Blood and Water as the Font of Mercy, I trust in You. 

The Pope was clearly failing, but I thought he would ride out it out until the end.   But he has decided the job needs a person who is more energetic.   Sounds logical to me.    Maybe he wanted to be alive to influence the election of his successor.  

We have a lot of praying to do and as our friend Kevin said earlier, get the popcorn!  It is about to get very interesting.

Let the conjecture commence!

Carol, You might want to check out the Holy Souls Hermitage blog (again)with a hermit's take on how Pope Benedict's removing himself to a life of prayer will renew the church as St. Francis did. http://holysoulshermitage.com/2013/02/11/the-agony-of-pope-benedict-xvi-lets-understand-this-in-solidarity-welcome-to-what-it-means-to-be-a-hermit-holy-father/

I hope and pray that the next pope is a traditionalist who owes absolutely nothing to the Vatican II crowd. And I hope he will be young enough to be around for a very long time to reverse the damage done by those folks!

Well lets see if St Malachy hit it right, seems he did with this Pope, The Order of St Benedict, next up "In the final persecution of The Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the sevenhilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people."

It will be a miracle if they elect a Neoconservative. At least it won’t be ++Mahony.

the next pope will be a michael. it is the only way that the devil will flash like a falling star across the heaven

TTC said...

Mike, it's fun to guess and hope. But I would not want anyone to think my invitation was inviting clairvoyance or divination.

If the next Pope were to honor St. Michael, that would certainly be received well among the faithful who can see the culture deteriorating.

But Christ's Church can and does defeat the devil through the sanctification of souls and the Sacraments - irrespective of what the Pope decides to name himself.

TTC said...

Tancred- you think so? They've spent a few decades now stacking the decks with Cardinals who are faithful to doctrine.

Just the same - to be on the safe side, I am praying for miracles. I have my own preferences for his successor, but have complete trust that Christ will see us through. For the sake of the village idiots, I do hope and fervently pray that our next Pope will proclaim the truth with the vigilance and courage needed. It is sickening to watch our friends, family and people we love being deceived and programmed for destruction.
