As you all must be aware, Pope Benedict is going to step down.
If a couple who get married suddenly divorce then was that decision to marry from God?
If the Catholics believe that the selection of their pope was from God- how can God select or allow something that would shake His Church?
Spiritually and ecclesiologically speaking, what does this mean??
Has a Coptic Orthodox Pope ever resigned.
I feel so bad for our catholic brothers! They have had to endure a lot. Apparently, 4000 priests were found guilty of child molestation involving around 10000 victims.
Now to be told that the Holy Spirit that was meant to have at least selected a pope , a leader to their Holy See, did so on a temporary basis will be hard for them.
