Benedict XVI leaves the
papacy much as he found it

Washington Post, by Editorial Board

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 2/11/2013 5:40:03 PM

IN EIGHT years as pope, Benedict XVI’s boldest act may have been his last one. (Snip) Pope Benedict’s response to the greatest challenge he faced — the explosion of sexual-abuse scandals in Catholic dioceses around the world — was inadequate. During his visit to the United States in 2008, he met with victims of predatory priests; he later apologized for the crimes and oversaw modest Vatican measures to extend the statute of limitation for cases and prevent further abuse. But the pope never acted against bishops who covered up crimes, and he never admitted or apologized for his own failures

A very wise move to step down. In the future, precedent has now been established. The Church cannot afford to have a 100 yo Pope with Alziehmers or dementia. Sign of the times.
Circumstances change.

“I would say that this problem of AIDS cannot be overcome with advertising slogans. If the soul is lacking, if Africans do not help one another, the scourge cannot be resolved by distributing condoms; quite the contrary, we risk worsening the problem. The solution can only come through a twofold commitment: firstly, the humanization of sexuality, in other words a spiritual and human renewal bringing a new way of behaving towards one another; and secondly, true friendship, above all with those who are suffering, a readiness - even through personal sacrifice - to be present with those who suffer. And these are the factors that help and bring visible progress.

“Therefore, I would say that our double effort is to renew the human person internally, to give spiritual and human strength to a way of behaving that is just towards our own body and the other person’s body; and this capacity of suffering with those who suffer, to remain present in trying situations.

“I believe that this is the first response [to AIDS] and that this is what the Church does, and thus, she offers a great and important contribution. And we are grateful to those that do this.” - Pope Benedict

Almost all of the priest sex abuse is homosexual oriented. The regular and moral majority among priests is doing much better than any other professional group. The WASHINGTON POST, words that are often censored themselves, continues its campaign of denigration and character assassination while approving of perverted sexual practices among (for example) politicians.

#5 Pope Benedict will remain a cardinal upon resigning the papacy, but he is over 80 years of age and therefore is ineligible to vote.

Not being a Catholic but having boundless respect for the Papacy and all Popes, I think Benedict may be setting a good example by allowing another to serve if he thinks he cannot fill the office sufficiently. (Would that secular leaders be similarly responsible to the office they hold and the people they serve).

I know this must have been an extremely difficult decision for him, and that God surely helped him make it.

Well.

Priestly celibacy is a matter of church discipline and can be reconsidered. In fact, there are married men who enter the priesthood in Eastern Rite Catholic churches, and there are married priests who have been allowed to convert to the Catholic faith.

But women as priests?!? Is the Washington Post aware that Holy Orders are a sacrament that cannot be changed by any pope, ever? Sheesh, I´m not even a Catholic and I know that. Could it possibly be that there is a dearth of properly catechized, practicing Catholics among the ranks of editorial writers at the Washington Post?

Agree the Post has no credibility to justify commentary about the Pope´s shortcomings. However I also agree with their criticisms of him. Pope Benedict did NOTHING to punish the perpetrators of the sexual abuse scandal-said he did not have the authority to overrule Bishops. That said, exactly what are the responsibilities and powers of being the Pope? I just don´t get it. I was a teacher in a Catholic school and also an administrator of CCD classes. I saw everything first hand. The Church punished the brave few who spoke up and rewarded the perpetrators and kept them in power. There were absolutely NO repercussions at all either then or in to the future.

I was raised Roman, but am now ACC (we are the Anglicans who left the Episcopal church because the ECUSA began ordaining women as priests back in the 70s and practice the 1928 BCP) - I would hope that the next Pope does as the current one has done and reject any prods to ordain women as well. It will fly in the very face of all the history of the Catholic church - it abrogates the very Apostolic Succession, the ´great commission´ if you will, that Christ Himself gave to the twelve, NONE of whom were women. Women have their role in the Church...and indeed, they have been among the strongest drivers and and adherents of the Church, but making them priests will not "correct a wrong." It will only slap God in the face and make the universal church of Christians a organ of humanity, not God. The Apostolic Succession was laid out as a principle of Christian sovereignty in the Nicene Creed. To get rid of that is to unravel the church, which is the REAL purpose of these progressives. Who will you follow, God, or Man?

Im sorry I just realized my lack of edit made it sound as if the 1928 BCP was a BAD thing...It isnt...the ACC practices the 1928 BCP, rejecting later versions as being far too liberal and lenient with the Holy Gospel.

In ‘Noah,’ a hard rain
Boston Globe, by Ty Burr    Original Article

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart.

There are unfinished hotels, half-finished stores and a mall where the only shop that is open and thriving is a Cinnabon. Wander the premises over the course of a day

Justin Bieber’s mansion reportedly was stuffed with drugs and paraphernalia when cops rolled up to serve an egging-related search warrant last week. Two large cookie jars loaded with marijuana sat in plain view of the dozen detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, an unidentified source told TMZ.com. The notorious party palace also contained four or five empty codeine bottles along with empty Fanta bottles, TMZ said. The Fanta bottles appeared to be discolored by the codeine, a sign they were used to mix the narcotic drink Sizzurp, also called “lean.” Luckily for the Biebs, the deputies were raiding the house for surveillance

Jeff Ireland is out as the Miami Dolphins´ general manager. The team announced Tuesday it has mutually agreed to part ways with Ireland, who had been a controversial figure since being named GM in 2008. (Snip) The Dolphins haven´t been to the playoffs since 2008, finishing 7-9, 7-9, 6-10, 7-9 and 8-8 since. They needed to win one of their final two games to make the postseason this season but lost to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. That cost offensive coordinator Mike Sherman his job Monday and surely contributed to Ireland's ouster a day later.

Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character.
