Pope said to be near death; tens of thousands gather at Vatican
Pope John Paul II was near death Saturday, his breathing shallow and his heart and kidneys failing, the Vatican said. Millions of faithful around the world knelt, crawled on their knees, bowed their heads and lit candles to pray for the 84-year-old pontiff.

Because of impriting, my friend. People who donīt move their emotions only look at what is presented instead of feeling the truth.

Catholics traditionally kneel at certain times during prayer, as Scripture tells us to. ("Every knee shall bend...")

"Crawling on knees" refers to a practice, now rare, of traversing a short distance while continuing to kneel. It is meant to be a sign of humility and penitence.

Needless to say, the practice has nothing to do with the Pope per se. Kneeling, and this knee-walking, is meant to be prayer to God.

I see kneeling as a sign of submission or fear from a punishing god. My people stand with arms outstretched and wide open to accept the powers from a loving Creator.
Each to their own but thatīs the way I see it.

Old Indian Man,

Although kneeling is but one of our prayer postures, you are correct that it signifies *submission*. Our Scripture tells us that submission to the Omnipotent Creator and His Will is not just appropriate but necessary. And yes, he does administer punishment, certainly after death (to severe evildoers who have not repented) but occasionally even in this earthly life.

Nevertheless, standing is our most common prayer posture.

Sheeple are too damn blind to see God in all of nature around them. So they take a mere man and through idolatry transform him into the God they want to see. When this man is dead and gone the RCC will create a new image for the sheeple to worship and the circus will continue.

Get real budy, submission is your thing, you feel like you have no control over your own self so you give the responsabilety to some would call, "your imaginary friend"

Who should wear that strait jacket of mine?

Because they are nimrods that worship a man instead of God. They are blind and refuse to see the light of truth.

We see God ( Creator ) as more of a good Father figure as opposed to a father who punishes his children so much as to even cause their death.
What kind of god would do that? A father in human form who kills his children because the child does something bad is usually sentenced to a life long prison term. It is not acceptable in society nor should it be.
Our father is a loving one and he forgives us no matter what we do. Our father does not condone human suffering or place it upon us. That is what unconditional love for your children is all about. It is up to us to do things in the right way and the consequences are brought on by our own actions. We punish ourselves. What ever we do to the web of life, we do to ourselves as well. If we hurt the Earth, we are only hurting ourselves. If we hurt each other, we are only hurting ourselves. Itīs not gods judgement for he does not judge us.

Because this system was developed as a system of rule.

No one person is closer to God then the next.


Though I do sense this pope was a good man.
