‘In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society.’ http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/popes-child-porn-normal-claim-sparks-outrage-among-victims-28577483.html
Is that really a Lightning Strike on the Vatican to help force the resignation? Oh hallelujah Lord be Praised!
Strike was 11/2/2013. Look at those numbers. Numerologists will be getting out their calculators. Ratzinger the 111th pope from the Prophecies of St Malachy.

Der Spiegel continues to investigate the Pope’s role in allowing a known paedophile priest to work with children in the early 1980s.

The pope and other Vatican officials failed to punish a Wisconsin priest who may have molested as many as 200 deaf boys, according to The New York Times.
