Default Pope Benedict XVI to resign on February 28, first to step down since 15th century.


The pope says his strength has deteriorated to 'the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity' to fulfill the duties of office; resignation to take effect at 7 P.M. GMT on Feb. 28.

It's very rare for a Pope to leave their job - the last time this happened was in the 1400s (1415).



You and your bavarian beers will be missed in Vatican.

Quote:
"Dear Brothers,

I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church.

After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.

However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry ent...ted to me.

For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, ent...ted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects.

And now, let us ent...t the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff.

With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer."

BENEDICTUS PP XVI
His twitter account : https://twitter.com/Pontifex/


According to tagesschau.de, His Holiness is to retire to a monastery in the Vatican city. I wasn't aware there was one ... they try to hide something (Alzheimer or worse ?)



This thread will be updated until the next Pope election

You asked for it :

Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana is named Peter and is black.

--> From the papal prophecies of St Malachy (Malachy counted 112 Popes until the end of the Church, Benedikt was the 111th) :

"10. Peter the Roman - This final Pope will likely be Satan, taking the form of a man named Peter who will gain a worldwide allegiance and adoration. He will be the final antichrist which prophecy students have long foretold. If it were possible, even the very elect would be deceived. The 112th prophesy states: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Pet... Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."

Nostradamus repeately speaks about a black Pope and an epic c...ade against Fear and Evil (War on Terror/Axis of Evil) led by people from accros the Ocean (USA) against Asian dudes (China) and Gog and Magog (Syria) too.

Year of the snake -> snake = demon -> Demon's year.

We will all die

What's the pope actually do? What's he actually retiring from? It's not like he has to wrestle the undertaker or anything. I think he's just being lazy.

He probably just got sick of me winding him up on Twitter. I'm claiming this one.

In all seriousness though, this is a good opportunity to modernise the Catholic Church and help bring it forward into the 15th
century.
