Now I am sure that all of us has heard about the Pope resigning, well I’m sure that the whole world heard about it. I am not going to start bashing the Pope or state whether or not I agree, but what I will ask is what’s up with all these “end of the world” predictions? First it was that whack job who said the end was coming on October 21st (whatever year), then when it didn’t happen he said the 21st was the beginning and the end was another date… yea, sure, OK, we all believe you. Then there was the Mayan calendar and Nostradamus, that the end was December 21, 2012. As you can see we are all still here. I don’t think Nostradamus gave an exact date, but he did give some pretty accurate predictions. Now we have St. Malachy’s predictions about all the popes, he said there would be only 112 more popes, here is the English and Latin translations:
“In ſecutione extre- ma S.R.E. ſedebit. Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tre mẽdus iudicabit po pulum ſuum. Finis.”
“In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit [i.e., as bishop].
Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations:
and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed,
and the terrible judge will judge his people.
People can make come up with their own opinions on what this exactly means… my opinion is this… Are ya’ll ready to hear this? (That’s right I said ya’ll). My opinion is that we need to stop caring when the world is going to end. Everyone is so wound up on not only the end of the world but the future also. We need to stop worrying so much. Life is way too short to worry about anything, for all we know there will be no tomorrow, shoot, you might not make it to the next word, I might not even live to the next word I’m suppose to type. We don’t know when our time is up, so why not live our life the way God, Zeus, Lugh (Irish version of Zeus),Odin, Jupiter, spaghetti god or whatever the heck you believe in, intended us to live.
Now I’m not saying there is nothing in the future you should prepare for… there are things they everyone should prepare for, like save some money encase you live to see tomorrow and you need it; things like that are good to prepare for the future. We shouldn’t be fanatics and stock up all this crap encase the world ends…hey if the world ends you probably wont need that stuff anyways.
As for Pope Benedict XVI, I really do wish him well and hope that he made the right decision for himself.
Hope you all survive and watch out for the spaghetti god, I heard he turns people into meatballs.
