Pontifical High Mass: Ratslinger

This is the one Herr Papst Ratslinger said at Westminister Cathedral in London. I downloaded it and burned it to DVD, all 2 hrs, 45 minutes of it. I watched it last night (Saturday).The only good part for me was the music. I went to Mass there in 1968 and went up to the organ after Mass. Of course t...

Re: Reading the bible. Any tips?

I got as far as King II, then tore up the bible.

Re: Pope claims Nazis were actually atheists

I was quite shocked that Herr Papst Ratslinger, Der Führer von der Vatican Reich had the audacity to even mention the War, Hitler and Nazis.

Beyond the normal definition of resignation I have no understanding as to what it means in the Catholic churches sense of the word. This is in the front page of the two big broadsheets. Exactly wh...
