Pope Benedict stunned the Roman Catholic Church including his closest advisers on Monday when he announced he would stand down in the first papal abdication in 700 years, saying he no longer had the mental and physical strength to run the Church through a period of major crisis.
Church officials tried to relay a climate of calm confidence in the running of a 2,000-year-old institution but the decision could lead to one of the most uncertain and unstable periods in centuries for a Church besieged by scandal and defections.
Several popes in the past, including Benedict's predecessor John Paul, refrained from stepping down even when severely ill, precisely because of the confusion and division that could be caused by having an "ex-pope" and a reigning pope living at the same time.
This could create a particularly difficult problem if the next pope is a progressive who influences such teachings as the ban on women priests and artificial birth control and its insistence on a celibate priesthood.
The Church has been rocked during Benedict's nearly eight-year papacy by child sexual abuse crises and Muslim anger after the pope compared Islam to violence. Jews were upset over rehabilitation of a Holocaust denier and there was scandal over the leaking of the pope's private papers by his personal butler.
In an announcement read to cardinals in Latin, the universal language of the Church, the 85-year-old said: "Well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of St Peter ...
"As from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours (1900 GMT) the See of Rome, the See of St. Peter will be vacant and a conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is."

Nope, and never will. Dolly does ever day however. He gets to meet all the saucy senoritas in his community that way while thumbing his nose at scripture.

I have watched EWTN from time to time though, Beautiful canticles and chants. If it wasn't for that danged transubstantion nonsense and statues you might have something.
You have difficulties with accepting transubstantiation?
Even as Jesus spoke the words, that was a stumbling block to many wanna-be disciples of The Christ.

"The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
Jesus said to them,“Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day.

Then many of his disciples who were listening said,“This saying is hard; who can accept it?”

Since Jesus knew that his disciples were murmuring about this, he said to them,“Does this shock you?

But there are some of you who do not believe.”
Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him.

As a result of this, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him."

John 6:52-54 & 60,61,64,66

Oh ye of little faith. You should not thumb your nose at the word of The Lord.

Did Ratzinger protect you when you passed off a faxed missing child report as your own?

Seeking power > if you try to get what someone else has, you can become like that person in order to get it. And that can mean losing too much ... not finding out how to love.

There are people who can't tell the difference between a real pastor and a predator. So, really, they do not know who their leaders are, if they can not tell the difference. They might be only judging by what ones say and how they act, but Jesus says, "'Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.'" (John 7:24)

I want to nominate fr Guido Sarducci for the next pope.
He's been dead a long time. But perhaps that would be a good idea since so many seem to flog the Pope as the Antichrist. Then we could all say, Hallelujah, the Antichrist is dead. I personally see the Antichrist representing something else entirely, but that remains to be seen.
