A Mystery in Plain Sight - Is the Pope considering resigning?
This is very interesting.

"I'm putting this here because it's news. This Sunday, July 4th, Pope Benedict is visiting the tomb of Celestine for the second time in 15 months. This is significant because Celestine is the only Pope to resign being Pope."

The Celestine Sign

Yesterday was the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, apostles of the beginnings of the Church -- one to the Jews, the other to the nations. But the times remind one of a man who took the name "Celestine" when he became Pope, a name never chosen again...

By Robert Moynihan Inside the Vatican (reporting June 29)

=====================================
"I resign the papacy out of the desire for humility, for a purer life, for a stainless conscience, the deficiencies of my own physical strength, my ignorance, the perverseness of the people, my longing for the tranquility of my former life." --Pope St. Celestine V (1209-1296), also known as Pietro da Marrone, the only Pope in history to resign the papacy, giving the reasons for his resignation on December 13, 1294 after only five months as Pope. He lived another year and a half, kept in prison by his successor, Boniface VIII (the quote above is slightly paraphrased to put it into the first person)

"I saw and recognized the shade of him who by his cowardice made the great refusal" --Dante, Inferno, III, 5960; many scholars believe Dante is referring to Celestine V, placing him in Hell because Dante felt Celestine had acted in a cowardly way by resigning rather than facing and fighting the forces of evil in the Church)
=========================

A Mystery in Plain Sight

Today (reported June 29) in Rome, on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, Pope Benedict XVI gave a remarkable homily in which he mentions the threats that will come against the Church in the "last days."


This homily must be read in part as Benedict's commentary on the sexual abuse crisis and the increasing pressure being placed on the Church by secular judicial and law enforcement authorities. (see below)
The homily thus provides a deep insight into Benedict's mind at this troubled moment in his pontificate.

The feast in Rome on June 29 each year is the feast in which the Pope places the "pallium," a cloth made of wool, upon the shoulders of archbishops from around the world chosen during the past year as a sign that they are "linked" or "yoked" to the universal Church, to Rome, and to the person of the Pope.


In his homily, the Pope speaks of the "liberty of the Church" and says this liberty is protected by the strength of the union between the bishops around the world and the bishop of Rome, the Pope.
A little more than a year ago, on April 29, 2009, Benedict did something unusual. He left his own "pallium," the sign of his episcopal authority and his connection to Christ, on a tomb in Aquila, Italy. The tomb held the remains of a relatively obscure medieval Pope named was Celestine V (1209-1296).

Why?


Celestine was a holy monk. His model was John the Baptist. His wore hair-cloth and a chain of iron. He fasted every day except Sunday and each year he kept four Lents on bread and water alone. Many kindred spirits gathered about him eager to imitate his rule of life, and before his death there were 36 monasteries, numbering 600 religious, bearing his papal name (Celestini).

But he was not just a monk.

Perhaps, they are starting to see the Light. No, I don't think the Pope will resign, but he is no more or less, than just the Bishop of Rome.

Search for the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church to see the difference between them and the Roman Catholic Church.

Sacred Heart of Jesus.

And the rest is yet to come.

Count Leo Tolstoy will return to head both Churches. He will be very wise and noble but will not hold back his justice.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

He will force us to use sacks of shit as weapons, though all wars will still be permitted. I believe this is spirit which will make him decree thusly.

Shit-apults, that is to say, giant shit flinging machines will be allowed I surmise. The shit-trebuchet however is right out, as it flings shit which can kill a man.

Yes, so war under the Count's wise guidance will be reduced to what it really is. But instead of men's guts being flung, it'll be shit.

I understand that Luther was quite the fecophile? I mean I don't want to 'go there' butt something tells me we've not seen the end yet? HAHAHA

They must remove him quickly or face an early demise.
