Seems I read something to the effect that Nostradamus prophesied that an interloper wouls become the penultimate Pope and cause all sorts of scandal.  Strange, then, that, amid all the scandalmongering now going on around the upcoming conclave, I've heard nothing of this.

Maybe because said "interloper" isn't becoming the penultimate Pope or that Pope BXVI wasn't, either?  When has there not been scandal and mongering associated with the Church?

Certainly this made the work of the retiring Pope more difficult:

Chief exorcist says Devil is in the Vatican

Nick Squires

The evil influence of Satan was evident in the highest ranks of the Catholic hierarchy, with “cardinals who do not believe in Jesus and bishops who are linked to the demon,” Father Amorth [The Vatican's chief exorcist] said.

Recent revelations of “violence and paedophilia” committed by Catholic priests against children in their care was also the work of the Devil, said Father Amorth,

I liked this part of the speech of His Holiness:

Quote
[These years] have been a stretch of the Church’s pilgrim way, which has seen moments joy and light, but also difficult moments. I have felt like St. Peter with the Apostles in the boat on the Sea of Galilee: the Lord has given us many days of sunshine and gentle breeze, days in which the catch has been abundant; [then] there have been times when the seas were rough and the wind against us, as in the whole history of the Church it has ever been – and the Lord seemed to sleep. Nevertheless, I always knew that the Lord is in the barque, that the barque of the Church is not mine, not ours, but His – and He shall not let her sink. It is He, who steers her: to be sure, he does so also through men of His choosing, for He desired that it be so. This was and is a certainty that nothing can tarnish. It is for this reason, that today my heart is filled with gratitude to God, for never did He leave me or the Church without His consolation, His light, His love.

It sounds really like a lesson for all dioceses and parishes to understand and learn.

As Pope Benedict XVl resigns, The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church will have its Vl Patriarch, today! Is it just a coincidence that these two occurrences take place on this very day? I truly believe, also in the 21st century, David can beat Golliath.

I can see the first thing His Holiness does after greeting the people from his balcony is go to his favorite recliner, as his staff brings him his cappuccino.  "Is His Holiness comfortable?"  He answers, "Ack!  All my favorite programs have been preempted for coverage of my resignation."

All kidding, aside, tomorrow it will all sink in and he'll realize he no longer has all these meetings and paper work to deal with.  God bless him i n his retirement.

The succeeding pope will be the third pope that I see in my lifetime. Man, I feel old now.

Why?  Back in the day there was a new Pope every few years.  Pope John Paul II defied the odds by being Pope for over 20 years.

Or maybe it means that our communion in the faith is even more fundamental than our communion with the Pope. Just saying.

In Arabic, I pray for the Pope in the dual (in the same way that we say "the two Peters" for "SS. Peter and Paul" and "the two moons" for "the sun and the moon.").

Do you think that Unam Sanctam does not take into account the instances when there is no Pope. There is currently no Pope. Do you think that that means that according to the Catholic Church, I am now damned?

Thing is though, the dual number doesn't exist in latin, so it would be the plural.

(I wouldnt put it in the plural, but that is a particular case of my not being in communion with the OO)

Do you think that Unam Sanctam does not take into account the instances when there is no Pope. There is currently no Pope. Do you think that that means that according to the Catholic Church, I am now damned?

My response was to ialmisry's response to your post where you said that unity is by faith, not to the Pope.  It is clear that the Catholic Church teachest that unity is through the Pope alone.  I guess you can say that if a Pope accepts one into communion then there is a guarantee that is a unity of faith.  But still it is through the Pope.  What if the Orthodox say today that they will accept full Communion with the Roman Catholic Church and accept all her teachings as is, but this offer expires in one week.  Do you think anyone in the Roman Catholic Church can take that offer right now?

As for whether you are saved or damned, I don't know.  It wasn't in the context of the discussion and not something I deeply thought about in that context.  I mean, you are asking a person who was Catholic for 36 years and left, if I truly believed that salvation rested on the Roman Pontiff then why did I go to the Orthodox Church?  Maybe try not dying until the next Pope is elected just to have your bases covered Wink

not quite.

In Arabic, I pray for the Pope in the dual (in the same way that we say "the two Peters" for "SS. Peter and Paul" and "the two moons" for "the sun and the moon.").

Thing is though, the dual number doesn't exist in latin, so it would be the plural.

(I wouldnt put it in the plural, but that is a particular case of my not being in communion with the OO)
The dual isn't just used to indicate two.  Sometimes it is used (as I do in the case of the two Popes Theodore II) to indicate identity.ادكر يا رب الباباوين ثيودورسين

Btw, I like this photo:

The figure in the center is the Lion of St. Mark the Evangelist.  I like how the Popes sit next to each other with the empty throne, until that day (God grant it soon!) one sits in it.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Ecumenism is only bad if it involves Catholics or protestants. Didn't you know that?

Well then you are simply delusional. If unity were "in the Pope alone" as you suggest, then at this moment, there would be not a single member of the Catholic Church. But as it is, there are still over a billion Catholics worldwide, in spite of the fact that there is no Pope with whom were are in communion.

Maybe there is no Roman Catholic Church.  Did you check?
