I truly hope you are correct and I am wrong. I find it odd that a Pope would make an announcement two days before Ash Wednesday that he is resigning during of Lent. That's too strange to me.

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. I don't think it is coincidental that he resigned today. Perhaps he is really and truly very ill and is turning to Our Lady of Lourdes.

Are you sure Bernard? Because I read in a different document that He will become the first Roman pontiff since Celestine V in 1294 to resign from the Chair of Peter.

The good news is this election won't be decided by Ohio.

in 2005, when papa benedict became our pope, he said if there was ever a time he was unable to carry out his duties as our pope, he would step down. this is not 'new' news. if you have looked at him recently, you will see a very frail man. maybe he is ill and has chosen to not let that information be known. (he shouldn't have to share more than he has).

my prayer is for people to let him live the rest of his days cloistered in prayer, as he as says he wants to do. he is a very wise man. this decision must have been very difficult for him to make.

mother mary, please wrap you cloak around this frail man, protect him and keep him safe. Praying theheart Praying sad rose

i read that after the Pope would visit the other countries, he would have to be bed-riddend to gain his strenght back, and for weeks. He always looked frail and feeble to me, how he lasted this long is anyone's guess!
