Pope’s probe into Hertford’s Templars

THE NEW POPE has reportedly made inquiries into a secret society in Hertford, the Knights Templar.

He is thought to have contacted a top Hertfordshire historian and a records officer at County Hall in Hertford.

The inquiries follow the Templars’ demand last December for a papal apology by 2007 for their persecution by the Vatican almost 700 years ago.

The demand - which the Vatican was said to be ‘seriously considering’ - made international headlines after it was exclusively revealed by the Mercury. The news also appeared in national newspapers, including The Times, The Independent, and The Guardian.

Now we have received new information that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger made the calls prior to his election as Pope Benedict XVI earlier this month.

I am a little suspect of a journalist who would use the word "cryptically" in his/her story.

He added, cryptically: “The pontiff chose Benedict as his papal title, a name with special significance for the Knights Templar. The Rule of the Templars, which is like a code of conduct for the Order, was originally known as the Rule of Benedict.”

Cryptically, I agree with TomS.

Helen,  Truly He has risen !!

With regards to the then Cardinal Ratzinger making not secret of his ambition to become Pope, I disagree.
He is reported to have prayed to God, the Almighty Father to "spare him the destiny" 
See below.

When the voting slowly developed making it clear that the guillotine was coming closer and pointing at me, I asked God to spare me this destiny," he said.
He recalled saying to God in his prayers: "You have younger, better, more enthusiastic and energetic candidates."
But he also said: "The Lord's road is not comfortable, but we are not made for comfort and so I could not have done anything but say Yes."
The Pope also shared a joke after apologising for arriving late. "The Germans are used to punctuality," he said. "I have become a bit of an Italian."


Your brother in Christ,
