[VIDEO] 3/13/13: NEW POPE ELECTED TODAY; IS THIS A SIGN OF THE END OF THE WORLD? POPE FRANCIS AKA JORGE BERGOGLIO

13 Mar

UPDATE:  GOOD NEWS!  Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina has been named the new Pope!  He has selected Pope Francis as his name…so maybe the end of the world is not yet here!

The big news of the day around the world, is that a new Pope has been named.  White smoke poured out from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel, as more than 100,000 onlookers cheered with joy.  The bells of St. Peter’s pealed at Saint Peters Square, leaving a lingering feeling of anticipation.  But is this good news?

According to prophecies of the Popes, it may confirm the end of the world is upon us.  Well, at least if Peter is the name chosen.  It is a bit creepy this announcement comes on 3/13/13….is this also a sign?  This also comes amidst scandals running rampant throughout the Catholic church.  Is this the beginning of the end?  Not sure, but this all seems so surreal.

Vatican City suggests the new pope will be announced shortly. The crowd shouted in Latin, “Habemus papam!” while waving their umbrellas. “We have a pope!”  However, it will be interesting to see who actually secures the top spot.  Will it be an American replacing Pope Benedict XVI?

Proponents of the prophecies claim that Pope Benedict XVI corresponded to the pope described in the penultimate prophecy. The list ends with a pope identified as “Peter the Roman”, whose pontificate will allegedly bring the destruction of the city of Rome and usher in the beginning of the ApocalypseLet’s hope not.

It is unfortunate, that even in this day and age women are not allowed to vote for a new pope.  Also astounding is that the pope decided to resign, which is highly unusual.  But why wouldn’t they retire at the age of about 70 like everybody else anyway?  Seems like a long time to work, even for the heavenly father.

On another note; it took the Cardinals only two days to select the most powerful position in the Catholic church.  For a leader serving over one billion follower’s this seems fairly fast.  Why can’t our U.S. politicians move this fast when making decisions?  Just a thought…

FIRST POPE FRANCIS…FIRST POPE FROM LATIN AMERICA…FIRST POPE NOT FROM EUROPE SINCE FIRST POPE PETER.   OH WAIT…SECOND MOST VOTES SINCE CARDINAL RATZINGER BACK IN 2005.

Francis.symbolizes; humility…simplicity…rebuilding…poverty.  Interesting message.

    I don’t know Britta. You have brought up some valid concerns,however. I was born Catholic and was baptized as a baby. I have not lost my faith for our Heavenly Father and Jesus. I have however have been losing faith and respect of the Catholic religion. I haven’t been to church in awhile, and the last time I went, I took my elderly aunt and uncle whom are unable to drive. I was so disappointed in the Mass. Not from the teachings from the Bible, but the majority of the Mass the Priest was asking the congregation for money! I pray for the World’s future as well Britta. We need to keep faith. We don’t always have to follow the majority, as it seems like the way the World is going…the “majority” isn’t always right. May God Bless you dear Britta, and for always keep you in His Care. Thank you for your intelligent posts. Jolene.
