BREAKING: Pope Benedict XVI Dies at 95 – Was First Pope to Resign in 600 Years – Spent 8 Years as Head of Catholic Church


Pope Benedict XVI died on Saturday. He was 95. He was the first pontiff to retire from his papal duties in 600 years. This allowed Jorge Bergoglio to take the top seat of the Catholic Church.

Pope Benedict resigned in February 2013 nearly ten years ago.

Pope Benedict XVI officially stepped down on February 28, 2013, as leader of the Catholic Church.

In his parting words Pope Benedict thanked his supporters for “your friendship and love.”

The Catholic News Agency reported:

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a leading theologian of the 20th century and the first pope to resign from office in nearly 600 years, has died at the age of 95, the Vatican announced.

His death was announced in Rome on Dec. 31. His funeral Mass will be held on Jan. 5, 2023, in St. Peter’s Square, the Vatican said.

The Vatican press office director, Matteo Bruni, said Dec. 31: “With sorrow I inform you that the Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, passed away today at 9:34 in the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in the Vatican.”

I have always felt that the stepping down of Benedict to allow the very first Jesuit Pope to take his seat was more than a bit suspicicious. And now we have witnessed a political, Globalist pope in Francis. He has been a mouthpiece for the U.N. and Climate change.

I think that the readers (if you have not read this) would be very interested in findings of what has been called “The Catholic Spring” which I posted in 2021 :

Did Soros, Clinton, Podesta and Obama Cause the Removal of Pope Benedict XVI and Have Him Replaced by Francis in What They Called a ‘CATHOLIC SPRING?’

Come Lord Jesus. Your bride awaits You!

    We know that all things are aligned for the Rapture, and the 7 Years of Jacob’s Trouble. Nothing happens outside God’s divine planning, what a gift it is to have our blessed hope!

    I am glad 2022 is almost over but pray that 2023 will be the year of our eternal departure into glory to be with Jesus. The Rapture is the method to being one with the Lord forever, that is something to yearn for!!!

    Happy New Year Geri and everyone who reads and comments here. I pray to meet you in the air soon-MARANATHA!
