I love this guy! He is acting how one who represents christ should. Love above these racist, sexist rules that the catholic church says is the way of christ. I hope he changes the church forever.

Or is this a sign of something else? Like how the candle burns brightest just before it goes out?

I would like to see him start a real conversation about Jesus and encourage Catholics and everyone to read the Gospels. Part of the problem with the RCC is the idea that the church does everything for you i.e.: absolution, such that the people are not encouraged to explore the deep mysteries of the Christian faith. Instead of BIble readings they are given litergies.

Well folks, this proves that imbeciles exist everywhere.
We've also seen that these events are part of a larger picture. It is certainly not just the papacy of Pope John Paul II which is involved, and it's not just about Fatima. With the resignation of Benedict XVI, and the subsequent "election" of Francis I, we are now able to see clearly that there is a pattern linking all of this together into a single cohesive over-arching story. The key which unlocks this entire puzzle is the fact that Benedict XVI resigned on February 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Lateran Treaty in 1929. As mentioned a couple of times, this was the agreement between Italy and the Catholic Church which granted statehood to the Vatican, and resolved a long-standing complication in international affairs.
It is crucially important to our story to understand the significance of this event and how it relates to what has happened over the last few weeks. History, not to mention prophecy, hangs in the balance. So let's now take a little detour, and review briefly the history and circumstances that led to the Vatican becoming a fully-fledged international state, and which also had the effect of making the Popes into Kings. Then we will be in a position to see, clearly and exactly, just what it is that the Vatican has been trying to achieve with all this fakery. ......

No, there was no 13th Apostle, any more than Mary is the fourth person in the Trinity.
There's nothing wrong with thinking Mary Magdalene (or any Mary, Martha or Simone) on an equal footing with the male disciples, but that is 20th Century western thinking, not First Century Judaic thinking, or the reality of that patriarchal society.
And the Council of Nicaea had nothing to do with the selection of Biblical canon. That is a known and demonstrable fact, and I wish I had a dollar for every time I have to point it out.
