I’ve been very sad about this news, but your post brightened me right up!! LOL!
The fix is in. ACORN will make certain that the next Pope is gay.
Cardinal Dolan of New York is said to be one possible candidate.
They certainly did well electing a gay president.
who is going to bump him off...the ‘fags’
or Joey Zasa?
LOL.... Good one.... :-)
And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
I would love to see a Pope from Africa, a black one, who would RAIL against the pro-infanticide occupier of the Oval Office....
Having a black pro-life proponent....one who can bypass the pro-infanticide media, would be wonderful.
He would be awesome but he is already 80 yrs old.
Cardinal Dolan is a wishy washy jokester. I hope not.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze. He got some of the Borgias, according to my son.
May our merciful Savior forgive you...
You’re cracking me up!
or (2) be a part of the Cardinals who choose the next Pope, no
and (3) if he doesnt like the selection, can he revoke his resignation? No
I don't complete understand his decision and don't know if it's to be verified or not, but the answers to your question are all no.
I see it mentioned, but for those who have read the Saint Malachy prophecies, he is supposed to be the second to last Pope. Here is what was predicted about Benedict from Wiki:
111 Glory of the olive.
Benedict XVI (20052013)
Chose the regnal name Benedict after St Benedict of Nursia, founder of the Benedictine Order. The order's crest contains an olive branch.
The next Pope prediction says:
Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.
112 Peter the Roman, who will Nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.
How about Raymond Cardinal Burke, former archbishop of St. Louis, then head of the Vatican’s “Supreme Court” (Apostolic Signatura), brilliant, staunchly conservative. He was an advocate of withholding Holy Communion from pro-abortion politician. As far as I know, he has not been tainted with the pedophile priest scandals. I believe he is a holy man. And, once when I attended Mass at the Cathedral-Basilica in St. Louis, he looked at me, nodded and smiled. How wonderful if that was my encounter with a future pope!
Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke - first American Pope. - Liberals heads exploding at the thought.
Cardinal Arinze would be wonderful. ;-)
