Wow. Was anyone expecting this? I sure wasn't.

CBC says he is doing it with full freedom and is well aware of the all the implications it entails.

It seems his overall energy level at age 85 is just too low for him to continue. More to come as this is just breaking.

Head of the Roman Catholic Church for the past 8 years, everyone knew he was under a lot of stress, but nevertheless this is still a surprise at this moment, as popes usually die in office.

Will the following pope be called Peter of Rome as St Malachi's prophecy predicts?

CTV reports the following

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Benedict XVI has announced that he will resign Feb. 28, the first pontiff to do so in nearly 600 years. The decision sets the stage for a conclave to elect a new pope before the end of March.

The 85-year-old pope announced his decision in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals Monday morning.

He said that because of his advanced age and diminishing strength, he didn't feel he could carry on the job.

Only an earthly man would make such a comment. Ever heard of "outer space" or "the universe"? Not trying to be malevolent but come on, use that gift please

He looked at the geopolitical situation of the world and said "I'm too old for this sh#t."

I don't blame him.

I was looking at another link regarding the prophecy and they had a list of other prophecies at the bottom of the page, then I saw this:

In 1909, while granting an audience, pope Pius X leaned back and closed his eyes. Suddenly he "awoke" and cried out: "What I see is terrifying. Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the pope will quit Rome, and in leaving the Vatican, he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests."

Well it looks like this video will soon be either confirmed or debunked.

We will also see the next pope become petrus romanus

en.wikipedia.org...


111 Glory of the olive. Benedict XVI (2005–2013) Joseph Ratzinger Chose the regnal name Benedict after St Benedict of Nursia, founder of the Benedictine Order. The order's crest contains an olive branch.

112 Peter the Roman, who will Nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.


Interesting times indeed

You know things are taking a turn for the worse when your cult's leader steps down. Time to find a new cult I think.
