The church has protected a lot of pediphiles and molesters for a lot of years so that is nothing new, but I think it's a bigger problem than we even know and he got that file that has been in the news and its very much more than he can stomach and I think he said to himself "I am too sick and old to deal with this sh-t let the next guy do it if he wants, I m out of it" but we may never know because the next Pope may keep it out of the public sight too. It's sick how they find out some pervert priest is molesting kids so they send em fr a few months of prayer and a new parish
To fulfill prophecy. ----------- Revelation 17:10-11 (KJV)10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen , and one is , and the other is not yet come ; and when he cometh , he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was , and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Our Pope retired, because he no longer has the stamina that being Pope requires. Read his own resignation announcement: he does not lie. He has no health problems that he knows of, except a pacemaker that he's had for many years, and no problems with it. At last report, he was enjoying praying, reading, reflecting, listening to music, walking in the gardens at Castel Gandolfo, and just plain relaxing. He still celebrates the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass every day. I hope this is helpful. Frank
