"Pope Benedict resigns?"
what

Popes can do that?

So what makes his infirmity so much worse than all the other popes since like the 1400's that he needs to step down?

I'm going to need some extra time here. And by the way? Good riddance.

I have no hope that this drags the Church kicking and screaming into 1946.

Oh, please. That's like retiring from politics because you can no longer take the weight of the money being pressed into your hand: if you can't handle the most basic function of the job, you're not ill, you're dead. And the really unbelievable part? You couldn't find anyone willing to pretend you were alive and hold your hand out for you.

7. "RE: Pope Benedict resigns?"
This is a shock. On one hand, it is a logical decision for someone to step down from a post if they feel they are not capable of the demands of the position. But a Pope is not a CEO, President or Prime Minister who serves at the will of a board of directors or the population of a country. He is chosen by God (according to the dogma), so isn't Benedict defying the will of God by stepping down?

And exactly what is the role of a former Pope? If he disagrees with the new Pope, who are the lay people supposed to follow?

27. "RE: Pope Benedict resigns?"
1) No, he's not "defying God." Canon law makes it clear that a Pope can retire as long as he does so freely and not under coercion:

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG1104/__P16.HTM

2) Pope Benedict XVI would become the "Bishop of Rome Emeritus". The new Pope would be the Bishop of Rome and thus would have supreme authority ranging back to St. Peter and St. Paul.

3) Does anyone actually believe Pope Benedict's statement that he isn't ill? Anyone? Bueller?

I suspect there is a diagnosis of illness behind this decision. But John Paul II was very ill for a very long time and never resigned. Benedict making this choice is a departure from the traditional ways of the Vatican.

Found this interesting from your link - a Pope does not technically have to be ordained before taking office:

Can. 332 §1. The Roman Pontiff obtains full and supreme power in the Church by his acceptance of legitimate election together with episcopal consecration. Therefore, a person elected to the supreme pontificate who is marked with episcopal character obtains this power from the moment of acceptance. If the person elected lacks episcopal character, however, he is to be ordained a bishop immediately.

He's under doctor's orders not to travel anymore. So that would definitely impede his ability to interact with his flock.

I wouldn't count out Sherer - growing up in Brazil would appeal to the large Latin American Catholic population, while his German lineage could make it easier for the European Cardinals to vote for him.

Cardinal Scherer is certainly a possibility, since I'm convinced that the new Pontiff will come from the ranks of the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization (which, BTW, also includes all the other main contenders).

Personally, I wonder if Pope Benedict XVI might have early stages of Alzheimer's, which might make it impossible to resign the papacy once he could no longer attest that he came to the decision "freely".

I wonder if Pope Benedict XVI might have early stages of Alzheimer's, which might make it impossible to resign the papacy once he could no longer attest that he came to the decision "freely".

I suppose that's possible. I searched around the web with one question leading to another and so on, and apparently under the Code of Canon Law there is no process (other than a Pope deciding to retire) for removing a Pope from office.

According to one thing I read the Cardinals discussed the issue 600 and some years ago when they were faced with a Pope they were contemplating removing from office, and came to the conclusion that even formally asking a Pope to step down would be an indictment of the Cardinals who installed him in office.

But of course the Vatican has a long history of Popes growing old and feeble in office, has ways of dealing with the problems of having a Pope no longer able to perform the duties of his office. Perhaps what Pope Benedict XVI actually decided was that it would simply not be good for the Church at this time to be in that predicament. If he has Alzheimer's he could still live quite awhile.

I agree. But?...

Given the unusualness of this resignation I think the Cardinals will want to select a new Pope who will in all likelihood survive his predecessor. It would not do to have a living Pope Emeritus when there is a vacancy due to death in the papacy. So given the list of candidates from various sources (and not knowing the ailments that may have lead the current Pope to his decision to resign and could survive into his 100s):


name nation age
Angelo Amato Italy 74
João Braz de Aviz Brazil 65
Angelo Bagnasco Italy 70
Jorge Bergoglio Argentina 76
Tarcisio Bertone Italy 78
Norberto Rivera Carrera Mexico 70
Timothy M. Dolan United States 63
Péter Erdő Hungary 60
Antonio C. Llovera Spain 67
Óscar A.R. Maradiaga Honduras 71
Marc Ouellet Canada 68
George Pell Australia 71
Mauro Piacenza Italy 68

Odilo Scherer Brazil 63

65. "RE: Hmmm"
Speaking as a dyed-in-the-wool Heathen, from what I've read, most feel that the College of Cardinals will go with someone who will be around for a while. They'll want to revive the hey-day of the first decade (or so) under John Paul II, with a vibrant go-getter type. This would lead to electing a younger (younger-ish) candidate. There has also been much speculation on answering to the growing population of non-European Catholics.

I'm thinking someone along the lines of Turkson, de Aviz, or Scherer would fit those needs. Of course, one thing that we all know that may just stifle this notion before it gets off the ground is the fact that the C of C chock full of Theological Luddites firmly ensconced in the sixteenth Century.

37. "RE: You are in Big Trouble"
Pope John Paul II was an extraordinary Pope who, like the Dalai Lama, wrote many books (dating back to his time as a family counselor in Poland) and who was a proponent of inter-faith dialog. Personally, I rate him as one of a dozen most influential people in the way I think and believe, although I am not now a Catholic, having been raised as one in early childhood.

The election and fall of Benedict, on the other hand, proves that the Papal Conclave is human (and certainly political) in its error.

I remember being an iconoclast. Coupled with my Quakerness, it was natural. Good people and leaders willing to take on the true burden of leadership are hard to get, or convince that they need to fill the shoes.

Jokewads need not apply. I was never raised in that environment, but I can make you a mean beef tartare.

Why do you say "fall" of Benedict? One thing I'm certain of is that no one asked him to resign (or even hinted at it).

Remember, Pope Jonn Paul II became Pope at 58, died at 84 and was seriously ill with Parkinson's for at least five years beforehand. Pope Benedict XVI is 86 now.

Personally, I expect that the next pope will be younger, as John Paul II was, so that he'll be viewed by the faithful more the way that John Paul II was. No bets on theology, though.

Yes, "fall" as in "fallible". The truth is that every Pope in history was human, and some of them more fallible than others, even if they did not relinquish their papacy prior to their death. In a way, it is refreshing to see Benedict give up his papacy in a rare precedence, openly acknowledging that he could not assume the duties of being Pope for the worldwide Catholic constituency. What follows remains to be seen, but it seems clear that the Church is in a time of necessary change lest it become obsolescent.

Which garden in particular?

I think that she could do a lot of pottering.

To be honest she seems fit and well and hasn't done anything wrong so I can't see the point of abdication, her own mother lived until she was 102 and was only a little doddery towards the end so I'm not expecting a king until 2023.

#11 looks interesting in Buddhist orange, #12 in black with a friendly smile, and maybe #2 with charisma. The rest of them look a bit scary, a few of them very scary.

If you were born on or after February 28, 2013, at or after the time Pope Benedict XVI's retirement officially began (8:00PM Central European Time), there will have been in your lifetime one pope and one pope emeritus. Until one of them dies or retires. Four time zones to the east make it March 1, 2013. Welcome to the world. If you were born before then see next.

If you were born on or after April 2, 2005, at or after the time of death of Pope John Paul II (9:37PM CET), there will have been in your lifetime two popes and one pope emeritus. Why are you still up at this hour? If you were born before then see next.

If you were born on or after September 28, 1978, at or after the time the dead body of Pope John Paul I was discovered after he died alone sometime during the night (something CET), there will have been in your lifetime three popes and one pope emeritus. Your were around when disco died but you were too young to remember. Or see next.

If you were born on or after August 6, 1978, at or after the time of death of Pope Paul VI, there will have been in your lifetime four popes and one pope emeritus. You were also too young to remember when disco died. Trust me, it deserved it. Or see next.

If you were born on or after June 3, 1963, at or after the time of death of Pope John XXIII, there will have been in your lifetime five popes and one pope emeritus. Congratulations, you survived the '60s and you weren't even paying attention. Or see next.

If you were born on or after October 9, 1958, at or after the time of death of Pope Pius XII, there will have been in your lifetime six popes and one pope emeritus. You wish you'd known to invest in Microsoft when it was a penny stock. Or see next.

If you were born on or after February 10, 1939, at or after the time of death of Pope Pius XI, there will have been in your lifetime seven popes and one pope emeritus. You wish you had invested in Xerox. Or see next.

If you were born on or after January 22, 1922, at or after the time of death of Pope Benedict XV, there will have been in your lifetime eight popes and one pope emeritus. You were a kid during the Great Depression, fought World War II, are pretty hard set in your ways and hoard your cash. You know it's true. Or see next.

If you were born on or after August 20, 1914, at or after the time of death of Pope Pius X, there will have been in your lifetime nine popes and one pope emeritus. Just hang on a little while longer. Or see next.

If you were born on or after July 20, 1903, at or after the time of death of Pope Leo XIII, there will have been in your lifetime ten popes and one pope emeritus. And, wow!, you're really up there. Or see next.

If you were born on or after February 7, 1878, at or after the time of death of Pope Pius IX in Vatican City before there were time zones, there will have been in your lifetime eleven popes and one pope emeritus. Now that was a long run. And you live in a remote mountain village somewhere where people subsist on nasty plain diets of mainly yogurt and live ungodly long lives. Or see next.

If you were ... forget it, you're a vampire, someone should stake you already.

Gee, I completely forgot about that event and the a-hole who organized it, as, I suspect, did most of the world. On the other hand, there are plenty of timeless disco records that I don't mind hearing and dancing to 30+ years later. Funny how that worked out.

97. "RE: The only thing it means to me."
If it's bigoted to point out someone whose philosophy is partially built around hating me, then so. it. goes. By the Church's perpetually unchanging definitions, I'm going to burn. So let's see -- what's the price I pay for expressing my honest opinion? Literally nothing I hadn't lost already. I have said before that absolute damnation equals absolute freedom. If everyone else ever figures it out, things will become entertaining in a hurry.

(And before anyone else brings it up, I do find some irony in having moved from 'former Nazi, but don't think about it, by order' to 'now let's see: where did the Nazis run to again?')

Various media outlets are already talking about this new leadership to bring the Church into the future. But the future remains 750 A.D. And as long as that applies, I will look forward to the day when the entire Vatican is so much ash drifting in the wind.

I hear ya. Actually, I didn't expect a socially liberal pope who was pro-choice, in favor of gay rights and so on.

But at least this guy lived according to his vows, including his vow of poverty, and from what they say he has been a champion for the poor. He brings a different perspective to the papacy, so he should be able to do some good. As long as the trappings of power and his inability to escape being wealthy beyond reason don't fry his brain.

Well, let's be careful about believing anything that the current Argentine government tells us about one of its enemies' actions during the era of the military junta's rule. It's really hard to know what, if anything, he did in lobbying with the junta.

It's too bad that Raul Alfonsin died three+ years ago, because I'd love to know what Alfonsin (one of the few honest leftists in Argentina, and the main opponent of the junta until its collapse) would have to say.

Curiously enough, I just recently finished reading a book about the Mossad and their capture of Otto Adolph Eichmann in Argentina, a rather fascinating three-year operation masterminded by Isser Harel.

In due fairness and credit to Pope Francis, he has very good relations with the Argentine Jewish community and rabbis, and I think he will continue to cultivate interfaith relationships, now even more so at an international level.

Papal factoid you never knew you needed to know:

Pope Francis (no number, as per official Vatican announcement -- that is until there is a Francis II) is the first Pope without a number since Pope Landrus assumed the title in 913.

>> In 1978 John Paul I included the I in his official title right away. He died less that a month later and was succeeded by John Paul II.

LAST EDITED ON 03-28-13 AT 06:19 PM (EST)

It's interesting... Pope Francis has eschewed the trappings of the papacy, preferring to live within a simple apartment in a building with his brothers instead of palatial quarters, and here he is kissing the feet of youths who are in detention for crimes commited in their youngest years. He is breaking decades and centuries old traditions, yet he is faithful to his faith, both in word and in deed.

I suppose that you can argue that he is the head of a religious body that has outdated and, by modern standards, bigotrous views and doctrine, but it seems that Pope Francis is sincere and compassionate in his word and his actions. He has offered to reach out to Orthodox Christians, Jews and Muslims alike as brothers in faith and hope for healing the schisms of the past.

John Paul was an extraordinary pope to precede Francis, with Benedict as a temporary bump in the road in the Catholic Church's path to relevancy in modern society. Raised a Catholic, I still have a piqued interest in Pope Francis and I see the potential for him to have as much an influence as the likes of his predecessor John Paul and the likes of the Dalai Lama and Ghandi. We'll see, and I like what I see.


Capn's wisdom

Now, there's somebody who we haven't seen in a long while, CapnPatch too, with the recent influx of old-timers here in OT.

Pope washes women's feet in break with church law

In his most significant break with tradition yet, Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of two young women at a juvenile detention center — a surprising departure from church rules that restrict the Holy Thursday ritual to men.

No pope has ever washed the feet of a woman before, and Francis' gesture sparked a debate among some conservatives and liturgical purists, who lamented he had set a "questionable example." Liberals welcomed the move as a sign of greater inclusiveness in the church.

118. "RE: Pope Benedict resigns?"
Speaking to the young offenders, including Muslims and Orthodox Christians, Francis said that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion in a gesture of love and service.

"This is a symbol, it is a sign. Washing your feet means I am at your service," Francis told the group, aged 14 to 21, at the Casal del Marmo detention facility in Rome.

"Help one another. This is what Jesus teaches us," the pope said. "This is what I do. And I do it with my heart. I do this with my heart because it is my duty. As a priest and bishop, I must be at your service."
