POPE BENEDICT SET TO RESIGN HIS OFFICE ON THE 28TH OF FEB, CITES OLD AGE AS FACTOR………

 

Unprecedented.

My guess it’ll be somebody that caters to PC big time, friendly to Islam. Just you wait and see. The bets are on.

pope to resign, the first time in hundreds of years 11.2.2013

 

The 85-year-old Pope announced his decision in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals on Monday morning.

“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,” he told the cardinals.

“I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiriual nature, must be carried out not only by words and deeds but no less with prayer and suffering.

Vatican spokesman, Federico Lombardi said: “The pope announced that he will leave his ministry at 8:00 pm (1900 GMT) on February 28.”

    (Reuters) – A Roman Catholic cardinal has caused an uproar at the Vatican by screening a spurious [sic] YouTube video that makes alarmist predictions about the growth of Islam in Europe.

    The seven-minute clip, called “Muslim Demographics,” was the talk of an international gathering of bishops on Monday, two days after Cardinal Peter Turkson screened it during a free discussion period.
