The existing pope & the old pope

The existing pope has given way to modern times, since he sees that his old ways may not be the best for the church, he has chosen to retire, in the hope that a new pope can bring renewed life to the Church.

The pope's sign of the time

Welcome to our article (80), Pope’s sign of the time

May God guide and help us to write these articles?

Dear readers, we can say that it is a religious article, because we are talking about the Roman Catholic pope. So, it is not the Reconciliation of the universe theory. However, it is part of our religious writings, because we are talking religious issues.

Anyhow, this article can belong to a new group, because we are going to write more articles. Now, this article was written when Pope Benedict resigned, but we want to add other religious events as they happen but let us start from this pope resignation.

What is happening today, I believe must be the sign of the time, because even the Pope has resigned; this event makes us believe that it can be the beginning of religious changes, which can take place soon. This can be the way that we have predicted in our religious writings, where we said that religious things must change soon or later, and religions need to be modified to meet the need of the people of the future. You see, Catholics cannot believe that the Pope can resign, but this pope did.

We, the Roman Catholics followers had the impression that only when a pope dies another pope can be elected, giving the impression that the pope was indeed elected from the spiritual force of God, therefore, could never spiritually fail, even when he becomes physically frail, because the spirit of God would still guide him. But this pope Benedict 16th believes otherwise, and because his body has become frail, he thinks that it is better for him to resign and let somebody else take over the Roman Catholic Church leadership.

Therefore, today all the believers and followers of the Roman Catholic Church are asking; Has the pope done the right thing by resigning his leadership of the Roman Catholic Church? And, the rest of the world asks that too. Let us look at what the media is reporting, and here are a few links that we can follow:

The Pope resigns

This resignation of Pope Benedict has been a real shock to the Roman Catholic believers, it must be the sign of the time. Anyhow, it is going to take a while for the Catholic people to accept his resignation, and the consequences that are going to follow from it. It is obvious that there will be consequences, perhaps there can be changes as well, to adjust to these new ways of doing religious things; you see, we are being told that this has never happened before, or for at least the last six centuries, so, the public needs to adjust to these new ways.

Now we wonder, how they are going to elect a new pope while the old pope is still around. What can the religious public say, when they are going to talk about the pope, they are talking about the old pope or the new pope, you see even by talking we can have problems, because the people are not used to have two popes, so, we are all waiting and watching what is going to happen next.

Anyhow, we are all shocked about the happening itself, because nobody was waiting for this to happen, so, we are waiting to see what is going to happen next, what else can we do, it is only natural.

----------------------------------------

Who is going to be Pope now?

Who is going to be Pope now people are asking? But they know, that this time to choose a new pope it's going to be a great dilemma, because whoever is going to be the new Pope, needs to solve accumulated religious problems; for a start, the new pope is going to need the courage to discipline anyone that does not behave 100 % according to their canonical laws. Therefore, whoever steps outside these accepted laws must be sacked on the spot from holding any ceremonial religious events, and if it is necessary ban them from doing anything religious.

As we know, there isn’t a day that paedophilia in the Roman Catholic Church is not mentioned in the media, now this paedophilia problem, is one of their problems and there are many others, so, what the new pontiff will do, will be very important for survival of the present system of the Roman Catholic Church itself; so, who is going to be willing to accept this great challenge is hard to say, but let us hope that there are a few cardinals capable and willing to solve these problems? We hope that at least some of them can do that. Otherwise religion must change a lot more that it is necessary.

Of course, there will be a lot more to say, after the new pope is elected.

------------------------------------

The new pope, Francis 1

The new pope, Francis 1. Here the question is, Does this new elected pope have what it takes to lead the Roman Catholic Church of today?

The new pope has been elected

As an Italian born, I wished the future pope would be Italian, you see, everybody wishes the pope is from their own country, sometimes it cannot be done, so, we have to accept what is best for the Christian community, and that is what the cardinals have done, by electing a pope from south America, which has a lot of Catholics people following this religion.

Here are some links to learn about the new pope and other religious issues.

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE CARDINALS

This new pope must work hard, if he wants to restore faith to those people that have lost faith in the Roman Catholic Church.

May God help Pope Francis to do the right things.

-------------------------------------

Our first impression of the pope

Every one of us, has his own ways of looking at these issues, and what I think is right to do, it may not be for somebody else, but this is my personal impression, so, let me say how I see the new pope today.

Looking at what is happening, it seems to me that there is a missing link with this new pope, there are no new ways to look forward; because he seems to look at the past and not the future, so, I believe that he wants to go backward to the ways the church was run before, let us hope that he does not take us back too far, to the Dark Age? But then again, I admit that my religious views are radical, since people do not associate themselves with my religious ideas.

Here I need to say, that this new pope has stopped my hope of an early change in religious circles. I was hoping that the new pope had a vision, and would take steps toward new religious beliefs, even if it was a very small step, nothing like what I have written in my religious articles of reconciliation of the universe, where God is the central life force that guides the entire universe, God being at the central point where all existing religions can link.

Anyhow, if my radical idea is accepted, then no more frictions can exist in religious circles. Well I suppose the time is not yet arrived for these changes to take place. I was hoping for too much happenings that would go my way. Perhaps the changes that I view in my mind eyes will take a very long time to come true, but I believe that they will be accepted one day, when everything else fails.

Anyhow, today I am editing this article, the new pope has been there for a while, so, let us talk about Pope Francis ways.

------------------------------------------

The two popes canonization

Pope Francis ways

This pope has been there for more than one year, he sure enough has his own ways of doing religious things, also his personal things are different from his predecessors, so, he does things his own way. You see, Pope Francis while he seems to drive the church back to the past, at the same time he pushes forward religious rites faster than it has ever done before, his latest move is the canonization in Rome of two popes. These two popes are still well known from the living religious people, so, to some of us who believed that to become a Saint, it is only possible when everybody of that generation has died; now we are asking ourselves if this canonization is premature. But anyhow, now it has been done, so, let us look at the religious service as it happened; under here is a link about this religious ceremony:

Pope Francis presides over John Paul II, John XXIII historic ...

Here under are some of the details, as reported from the press and I quote;

Pope John XXIII (25 November 1881 – 3 June 1963) and Pope John Paul II (18 May 1920 – 2 April 2005) reigned as popes of the Roman Catholic Church and the sovereigns of Vatican City (respectively from 1958 to 1963 and 1978 to 2005). Their canonizations were held on 27 April 2014.[1] The decision to canonize was made official by Pope Francis on 5 July 2013 following the recognition of a miracle attributed to the intercession of John Paul II, while John XXIII was canonized for his merits of opening the Second Vatican Council. The date of the canonization was assigned on 30 September 2013.

The Canonization Mass was celebrated by Pope Francis (with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI concelebrating), on Sunday 27 April 2014, in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican in Rome. End of quote.

We the believers still wonder, if the canonization of these two popes was too early after their death, especially Pope John Paul who has died only 9 years ago, but then who are we to assume that? We may as well assume that it was the will of God; otherwise this would not have happened. We have just to wait and see if the general public has anything to say.

-------------------------------------

At the canonization in Rome

About 150 Cardinals and Pope Benedict attending to con-celebrate the canonization Mass.

The religious ceremony

As usual these religious ceremonies attract lots of people, and a million people were estimated to have attended. Also, up to 150 Cardinals and 1,000 Bishops were expected to concelebrate the canonization Mass, as usual if one thinks about it; this is the greatest show on earth. After what we have seen here in Rome, we believe that for sure there is nothing larger or more organized than these religious ceremonies, so, no matter what the atheist or other religions say, the Roman Catholic Church is still one of the most dominant religion in the world, and it will be for centuries to come, even if adjustments are required in the future.

Readers please note that this article is not part of our religious writing of, Reconciliation of the universe, however it a religious article that belongs to another group, I hope I have been able to explain myself, so, see you next time, with our article, Praying for God love.

May God bless us all.
