Pope quitting ´for good of Church´
ANSA [Italy], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/11/2013 6:29:29 AM

Vatican City - Pope Benedict XVI said Monday he was quitting at the end of February "for the good of the Church". The 85-year-old pope said he had been "feeling the weight of the pontificate" and had been "thinking for a long time" about the almost unprecedented decision, according to Vatican sources. Benedict had never given any hint he might step down, a move only taken by one of his predecessors, Celestine V, in 1294. Last year the pope started using a cane on occasions and recently he appeared to have trouble reading the text of an address he delivered in Rome.

Jawdropper to this Catholic.

What a shock. I just hope the next pope is more aggressive pushing catholic doctrine and taking action against pro abortion and pro gay politicians.

...rather than trail off into ineptitude and die in office? Shows more compassion, courtesy, and common sense than most of our Legislators.

This Pope has been too soft on Islam. Time for a change.

The Pope is not here to do our political bidding, the Pope is here to lead the Catholic Church. This is a stunning decision.

I think your assessment might be a bit premature, #7, until we see who is elected to replace Pope Benedict.
A little more warning would have been nice though. There is definitely more to learn, possibly health issues that are more dire than is obvious? Whatever, time will tell. If God isn´t in control here...

This is the act of a truly holy man. God bless him for his humility and for all he has done to turn the hierarchy back to the path of tradition.

Now, let Petrus Romanus come.

Perhaps he believes that by doing this, he can play more of a role in picking his successor...? Though I don´t know, this is a confusing thing and I agree with the above poster that more warning would have been nice. We Catholics do not do well with sudden change. He must be in very bad shape and he needs our prayers. God Bless him.

There are powerful underlings that are perfectly willing to take on the challenges of the Pope´s office when the Pope is ill or infirm or increasingly incapable due to age. These Unelected underlings have been known to intrigue among themselves for their agendas.

At this time in The Church´s history, the Pope has apparently seen it is necessary to bring these underlings under control as he is physically and mentally not up to the task due to his advancing age and the illnesses that accompany it.

The article is wrong. Several Popes have resigned, the last being Gregory XII in 1415, who resigned to end the Great Western Schism.

I think he chose to make this announcement before Lent began so that a new Pope will be in place before Easter. He probably fears he´ll die or be incapacitated by Easter. Perhaps a sudden and severe decline in health...he doesn´t want to leave the Church leaderless at Easter.

There was a wonderful documentary recently about the relationship between Pope Julius and Michelangelo. Michelangelo was employed by Pope Julius to paint the Sistine Chapel and to construct the Pope´s tomb. It was interesting that, during the long period of Michelangelo´s employment, the artist became involved in the web of intrigue regarding perceived threats to the Catholic Chruch from forces who were questioning its validity as the type of institution it had become.

As for Pope Benedict, if he feels it´s time to go, it´s his privilege to choose to do so. He´s been a long-time servant and has done the job required of him. Nobody should begrudge him that, not even those who sticky by the notion that Popes should serve until the end of their lives.

I have a hige respect for Benedict XVI, his big heart and good mind, and I assume that he figures that it he resigns while he still has most of his strength and mental sharpness, he can move the chess pieces to get a good successor.

He´s appointed a lot of Cardinals, which pretty much sets up his "electoral college".

Well done, good and faithful servant.

I am not that surprised. I watch most of his appearances on EWTN and he has been increasingly frail. The rigors of public ministry during Holy Week are probably more than he could manage.

The timing is actually quite exquisite in terms of the liturgical year: Benedict´s last public ministry will be Ash Wednesday services and a new Pope should be in place in time for Holy Week on March 24.

My first thought is the globalists are scrambling now to insert their guy in this powerful role.

My second thought - maybe he had a ´come to Jesus´ moment and realized his organization is also a corrupt, political institution that is not serving Christ and needed to step aside to a) expose the moneychangers in the temple or b) protect his life and those he is close with.

The media already are campaigning loudly for a non-white pope who will favor unrestricted abortion, endorse gay marriage, and who will be deferential toward Islam. Sounds like a shopping list of total irreconcilables. I am not a Roman Catholic, but my understanding of the African Church is that it is far more rigorous and conservative in its beliefs and practices than are the European or American Churches, say. #9, that is a frightening thought.

You don´t have to go to the Griffith Observatory or other prime watching spot to view the first total lunar eclipse of 2014. Numerous "blood moon" video streams are available on the Web. The Griffith Observatory will be streaming the event live from the Zeiss dome beginning at 9:45 p.m. The Slooh Observatory in the Canary Islands will also be doing a live stream. NASA is also planning a live stream, with experts taking questions from viewers. For those who want to take in the event in person, Griffith Observatory decided to open its doors Monday (it´s usually closed). "We are expecting large crowds," the observatory said in a statement.

Chelsea Clinton says in a new interview that she´s open to a run for a multitude of offices, from mayor of New York to the U.S. Senate. "I live in a city and a state and a country where I support my elected representatives," Clinton told Fast Company. "If at some point that weren´t the case, and I didn´t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators -- and I'm lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know -- maybe then I'd have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come to a different answer."

The findings echo the conclusions of two other reports released last week by major pharmacy benefit managers, which predicted that spending on so-called specialty drugs would continue to rise.

In case you’ve somehow missed this latest round of Internet idiocy, here’s what went down: Sunday night, a Dutch teenager identified only as “Sarah” infamously tweeted a threat at American Airlines. (“hello my name’s Ibrahim and I’m from Afghanistan. I’m part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I’m gonna do something really big bye,” she wrote. Hilarious!)

Guantanamo Bay Navy Base, Cuba - A military judge abruptly recessed the first 9/11 trial hearing of the year Monday after defense lawyers accused the FBI in open court of trying to turn a defense team security officer into a secret informant. If true, the lawyers argued, attorney-client confidentiality might be compromised in the case that seeks to put on trial and execute five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon. At issue, in part, was the publication in January of prison camp musings by the alleged 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed,

Abuja, Nigeria - Bomb blasts ripped through a bus station in the suburbs of the Nigerian capital today in the largest single attack on Abuja since insurgents began violent operations in 2009. Authorities say 71 people were killed and 124 were injured in a strike on Nyanya Motor Park, a chaotic bus station where commuters board megabuses into the pristine city center for work less than 10 miles away. The blasts in Nigeria´s capital are a direct challenge to the government´s recent assurances that it has managed to contain Boko Haram, Nigeria's militant Islamist group, to the remote northeast of the country.

Sioux Falls, S.D. - A man with a history of mental illness was sentenced to death by a jury on Monday for killing a South Dakota hospice nurse as part of a plot to assassinate President Barack Obama. James McVay had pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a murder charge in 2012 in the stabbing death of 75-year-old Maybelle Schein. The Sioux Falls jury chose the death penalty, though jurors could have sentenced him to life in prison without parole. McVay, 43, said he killed Schein and stole her car as part of his plan to drive to Washington and kill the president. Authorities said McVay walked away from a minimum-security prison

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.
