The catholic church is not true christianity. It does not tell of salvation correctly. No matter who replaces him the situation will not be corrected. I hope if he is nearing the end of his life he will truly accept Christ as his only means of salvation.

Personally, I doubt that John-Paul II will do so. The sense of duty that he has displayed since ascending to the Papacy will ensure that he stays until his death.
Can the Pope resign

This is one of the most offensive posts I have had the displeasure to read.
Soviet leaders say this man was responsible for the collapse of Communism freeing millions from the yoke of tyranny and death.
He is the spiritual leader of the largest religion in history. There has been not a hint of corruption under his reign.
He is about as close to a living saint as any of you miserable excuses for humans will ever see.
BUt then again, this is America and you do have the right to spew venom as youy see fit.

Again once more so it is clear, I am merely trying to get some answers as to the replacability of the pope, what do you think about that? Should it be able to happen, will a new pope be able to repair the damage to the Catholic church in recent years? Or has to much damae been done?

I believe that secretly the Church wants the Pope to die becuase he is of no use. Hes just a waste of money,
Personally I can care less weather he lives or dies.

I find it sad that the Church needs a fresh face to convince adolescents that Christianity isnt totally ridiculous. They cant stop the inevitiable though, Christianity has 100 more years tops before it falls off the table.
