Farewell, Holy Father

The Holy Father is stepping down. His reasons will become apparent in time. The professional Vatican watchers are all having their say and I don't trust any of them. So what happens now? We'll be sad for awhile and then we will have a new Holy Father.
 Let's  stay calm brothers and sisters.  Don't let the St. Malachy "prophesies" freak you out. We are not Jehovah's Witnesses and this is not 1975. Nobody knows the day or the hour of when the world ends. 

Pray, pray, pray  for the Holy Father both present and soon to come.

Would someone please burp Rod Dreher and give him some gripe water?

I don't think the St. Malachy thing is legit. The pithy little descriptions of each Pope could be made to mean anything. The one that supposedly describes JPII seems particularly ludicrous: de labore solis, allegedly meaning that he was born and died under a solar eclipse. THAT'S the big prophecy of the first ever Polish Pope, who traveled all over the world, canonized oodles and kaboodles of saints, was nearly assassinated, and helped bring down the Iron Curtain? Puleez.

Like Anita, I've noticed that the Malachy prophecies are very vague. They are a wax nose you can twist any way you want to. It's like saying the sun will come up in the morning, or there will be a scandal in Hollywood.

I'm not offering a day or hour (for Harmageddon, at least), but I think BERGOGLIO has proven rather un-Catholic and so, on that post, a clear peril to souls all over the world, like Antichrist was warned of.

You do this sum, I am getting a bit tired of it. In case you consider the values given per letter as "funny", they are not, at least no longer.

Computers have been around quite a few decades and ... if Hebrew and Greek letter values in numbers were because Greeks and Hebrews used letters to count with, this is the reverse process, computers use counting (in 1 and 0) to write on screens and on printouts. Either way, every letter has a value, unlike Roman Numerals, where only a few of the letters had so.
