Yes, he announced it two days before start of Lent, 42 days before Easter, no Pope in sight for that 2nd greatest of Christianity's feasts...? Something is amiss. Anything to do with that latest Deutsche bank/Vatican Bank affair?Poppo,
What's with the long face today? It seems so out of character for you.
Did you hear that Ratzinger is going to resign?
First Pope to do so in over 600 years.
That oughta cheer you up.
Having said that, and any way one looks at it, it is bad news.
