News related Pope benedict: Pope will resign on 28th February

Pope Benedict to resign on February 28: Vatican: Just in: Pope Benedict is to resign on February 28, spokesman Father Federico Lombardi tells CNN. No reason has been given, reports CNN. The 85-year-old became Pope Benedict XVI in April 2005 following the death of Pope John Paul II. Details in a bit.

The last Pope to resign was Pope Gregory XII (1406-1415), who did so to end the Western schism, which had reached the point where there were three claimants to the Papal throne, Roman Pope Gregory XII, Avignon Antipope Benedict XIII, and Pisan Antipope John XXIII. Before resigning he formally convened the already existing Council of Constance and authorized it to elect his successor.

The Vatican says Pope Benedict will resign due to health reasons.

The shock move by the 85-year-old pontiff has stunned the Catholic world. The German was elected in April 2005 and took the name Benedict, having being born as Joseph Ratzinger.
In fact, one of the headlines that the Sun had debated on when he became pointiff was Heil Mary.

But they only say that the ANTI-CHRIST will rise, when all the World kings meet in Rome, there shall be a shower of fire and the shower will continue till all the kings are killed and during this carnage PETRUS ROMANUS will take charge and the city of SEVEN HILLS WILL FALL which will mark the end of the last POPE.

If the Pope resigns, let no one feel that it is the end of the Catholic faith.

So anyone having joyous inclination should realise that such joy is fallacious!

Now, go and say Hail Mary a 100 times!

Pope's resignation announcement in full - ANSA English - ANSA.it


"Dear Brothers, "I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. "I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. "However, in today's world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. "For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

"Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. "With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer".

Does anyone really care? I thought most of the Cathys switched to Protestant churches after the pedo gate.
