Feb 11 - Lightning strikes Vatican hours after Pope's shock resignation

This was the moment lightning struck the Vatican today - hours after Pope Benedict XVI's bolt-from-the-blue resignation.

The lightning touched the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, after the Pope's shock admission he lacks strength to do the job.

The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedict's decision to quit - the first pontiff to do so in 600 years.

The move surprised even his closest aides, even though Benedict, 85, had made clear in the past he would step down if he became too old or infirm.

In recent years, however, the pope has slowed down significantly, cutting back his foreign travel and limiting his audiences.

He now goes to and from the altar in St Peter's Basilica on a moving platform, to spare him the long walk down the aisle. Occasionally he uses a cane.

His 89-year-old brother, Georg Ratzinger, said doctors had recently advised the pope not to take any more trans-Atlantic trips.

"His age is weighing on him," Mr Ratzinger said. "At this age my brother wants more rest."

Benedict announced his resignation in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals, calling it "a decision of great importance for the life of the church."

He emphasised that carrying out the duties of being pope requires "both strength of mind and body."

He told the cardinals: "I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry."
The Vatican will hold a conclave before Easter to elect a new pope, with Benedict holding great sway over who should succeed him to lead the world's one billion Catholics.

Benedict has already hand-picked the bulk of the College of Cardinals - the princes of the church who will elect the next pope - to guarantee his conservative legacy and ensure an orthodox future for the church.

There are no obvious front-runners - the same situation when Benedict was elected in 2005 after the death of Pope John Paul II.

Given half of the world's Catholics live in the global south, there will once again be arguments for a pope to come from the developing world.

When Benedict was elected aged 78, he was the oldest pope chosen in nearly 300 years.

He had raised the possibility of resigning if he were simply too old or sick to continue on, when he was interviewed in 2010 for the book "Light of the World."

"If a pope clearly realises that he is no longer physically, psychologically and spiritually capable of handling the duties of his office, then he has a right, and under some circumstances, also an obligation to resign," Benedict said.

The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had an intimate view as Pope John Paul II, with whom he had worked closely for nearly a quarter-century, suffered through the debilitating end of his papacy.

The Vatican said immediately after his resignation, Benedict would go to Castel Gandolfo, a summer retreat south of Rome, and then would live in a cloistered monastery.

Benedict said he would serve the church for the remainder of his days "through a life dedicated to prayer."

n*gga are you 85 years of age or even have the slighest idea of the wear and tear your body has gone through, both physically and mentally, by the time one reaches that age? NO so stfu..he was already old as fu*k and probably wanted to stop putting the strain on himself to contiue to perform his pope duties..it takes a smart man to know when he's had enough and no longer can continue what he's doing..not to mention incredibly humble to step down from such a position of power like that.. @ looking more into it than what it really is

Noticed that sh*t too

Signalling a new change/era of leadership of the church maybe?

Or a new era of bad moral leadership/the fall of the church?

was pretty coincidental

Bilderbergs, obama....


they're fu*king the world up....only the poor think otherwise.....(they don't have enough money to see the devaluing of their hard earned (because they ain't work!!!) money....


dumb motherfu*kers....you think when he says the world is the reason, that it's too crazy...the last beacon of true freedom was removed from earth in 2008 when america went to "socialized healthcare" already signed into action military police to patrol us soil for when people grow a brain and realize obama's not black, he's the definition of ****** -- the person in the hood no one likes, unless they can use him, regardless of who it hurts.....

look at your lives now...lets say in 2008 you had 10$, haha, ok blunt rollers and 40 drinkers, that would mean today, by inflation you would need to have 14$...in 4 years it should NEVER go up that fast, if only that dumbfu*k weren't printing money to give it to you....it's ok, you lost....

PS...there's a reason you're still poor :(

so one priest can just break down everything for you anti-catholics?

so them using the current pope to promote that film helps in what way?

them bombarding him with questions and him not wanting to answer is a normal human characteristic

Shut the fu*k up. You don't know anything about the story. They've been covering up and protecting pedophiles for hundreds of years. One priest? Lmfao. U are delusional. Watch the documentary or keep ur head in the sand. This isn't a new story.

As a former Catholic for 17 years I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that the organization is corrupt, shady, greedy and extremely cult-like. Catholicism is the reason I began flirting with Atheism. Thankfully I saw the flaws in that line of thinking and have decided to travel down my own path of spirituality and develop my own beliefs and personal relationship with God.

I went to Catholic school for 4 years and it was the worst time of my life. We had one priest arrested for fu*king one of the students. Another was on the run from the police and they eventually discovered he was hiding out at our school. Then there was the priest who was the Athletic Director in which they found him with lewd pictures of girls that played on various sports teams. Then there was the Monsignor who was racists and one of the most greedy men I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. Out of the dozen priests at our school, I would say 3 were regular, normal people. All the others had major character flaws, but we able to mask them behind their frocks.
