Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI is ‘very ill’ and condition is ‘worsening’: Vatican


Pope Francis asked for prayers for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on Wednesday, saying his predecessor is “very ill.”

The surprise request came at the end of Francis’s audience at the Vatican.

“I would like to ask all of you for a special prayer for Pope Emeritus Benedict,” Francis said. “Remember him, he is very ill, asking the Lord to console him and sustain him.”

Francis did not expound on other details regarding Benedict’s health.

Following Francis’s comments, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni issued a statement explaining to the Associated Press that Benedict’s health situation “at the moment remains under control, constantly monitored by doctors.”

“Regarding the health conditions of the emeritus pope, for whom Pope Francis asked for prayers at the end of his general audience this morning, I can confirm that in the last hours, a worsening due to advanced age has happened,” Bruni said.

Benedict, 95, resigned as the leader of the Catholic Church in February 2013 and has remained living at the Vatican. It was the first time in 600 years that a pope had resigned. More

  1. The entire Church is terminally ill.

    Here’s a fuller description of its current state under the forcibly installed Communist Antipope.

    *1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

    2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

    3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

    4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

    5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

    6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.*
    Revelation 17

  2. So? The dude’s 95 y.o. What do you expect? Doing handstands and running marathons? Let him go peacefully into that good night, to be judged of God, Jesus, St Peter and all the other saints (now THERE would be something to watch).

  3. Thessalonians 2:
    ..3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He (the antipope) will (does) oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that *he sets himself up in God’s temple,* (has) proclaiming himself to be God.

    5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; *but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.* (Benedict?) 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

  4. Silly me for assuming shit again. I thought when he stepped aside that the rest of the world, Catholic or not, would be spared the drama and theatrics when he croaks. Oughta be a page 8 or 9 paragraph announcing his death. At least we won’t have to go through the month long vetting process for a new pope, and the 24 hour vigil watching for the puff of smoke.

  5. let’s get things straight here, Pope Benedict the xv1 did not
    ”resign”…………. he was Pushed out because He stood up against Islam, and Francis loves the Muslims. And that is it.

    Francis grew Up under Perrone ”don’t cry for me Argentina”hating capitalism and freedom.

  6. The Pope is no one special. As a matter of fact, he’s in with the same strain of satanic behavior of those in charge during the Inquisition. The Catholic Church nor their leaders will ever erase their history.

    Estimates of the number killed by the Spanish Inquisition, which Sixtus IV authorised in a papal bull in 1478, have ranged from 30,000 to 300,000. Some historians are convinced that millions died.Jun 15, 2004

  7. Not being Catholic or having attended any Catholic church, I can only attest to what I have witnessed of my friends that have spent their childhoods in Catholic schools and some time attending church in adulthood. At least that’s what they’ve said over the years.

    Let’s just say I am amazed how many Atheists that hate God the Catholic system produces. These are people I’ve known for almost 40 years. 3 out of 4 say they are secular now, don’t believe the Bible, and one in particular goes into a rage when you start talking about God and Jesus.

    If that ain’t a testimony to how corrupted it is, I don’t know what else to say.

    “You might want to check out the BBC documentary The Myth of the Spanish Inquisition; your numbers are wildly over-estimated.”

  9. Don’t call on Mary at the hour of your death;
    She can’t hear your prayer even at your last breath.
    She is not the gate of heaven, hope of sinners or a heavenly elevator,
    Nor is she the spouse of the Holy Spirit or our motherly mediator.
    Mary has no majestic royal throne reigning with Jesus on her lap.
    The Catholic Mary is a fabrication, so don’t fall into that trap.
    Twenty-four names on New Jerusalem, but Mary is not on the list.
    Only God and Jesus reign in heaven, so how can her throne exist?
    Shockingly, Jesus’ first recorded words were a rebuke to Mary.
    A sinless sovereign Queen of heaven is as real as a fairy.
    No apostle ever taught, without Mary there could be no savior.
    You better carefully watch your beliefs and your behavior.
    Towards Mary, Catholics do devotion and consecration,
    Apparently not knowing such is a horrible abomination.
    Mary is also their misplaced life, sweetness and hope.
    Reject that myth and go by the Bible, not the pope.
    Reject all Marian apparitions, papal decrees and tradition;
    You’re fighting for your very soul, so that is your mission.
    Though your family and priest might get angry and mad,
    Stand fast on God’s word so your destiny isn’t fiery bad.
    Jesus is the only way to God and we are to go to him directly.
    There is no intermediary to get to Jesus, so do it correctly.
    Jesus is the redeemer and he accomplished it with his own blood.
    To believe Mary is the co-redemptress is as virtuous as mud.
    Two Marys exist, but one is imaginary — a product of Tradition.
    That fabricated Mary has become an idol and a sure way to Perdition.
    In Paul’s day there was another Jesus — a mythical, horrible misrepresentation.
    In Catholicism, there exists another Mary, one who has led multitudes to damnation.
    Mary was full of grace, but so was Stephen the martyr.
    Multitudes are also blessed, so become scripturally smarter.
    The sincere Catholic priests and nuns are blind guides.
    For your soul’s sake: repent and swallow your Catholic pride.
    Peter never even inferred to Mary in either of his letters,
    Wake up and free yourself from those Catholic fetters.
    Idolatry includes bowing before and kissing statues in veneration.
    Become biblically educated and knowledgeable as a safe foundation.
    When Jesus returns he won’t be sitting on Momma’s knee.
    She is not even seen and for some that knowledge could be key.
    In New Jerusalem, the temple is the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb.
    The Queen of the Catholic church is an illusion, a myth and sham.
    The sacraments, Mary and being a Catholic won’t save you from hell.
    Instead, it takes heart-felt repentance and faith in Christ I must tell.
    It is vitally important that you change now, while you still can.
    That is the urgency connected with the Bible’s only salvation plan.
    Take this warning to heart and don’t further delay;
    Your soul remains in the greatest danger day after day.
    Stephen called on Lord Jesus at the hour of his death.
    He surely wasn’t a Catholic as he drew his last breath.
    Do not follow the catechism, papal bulls, encyclicals or creeds.
    Your entrance into God’s kingdom they will surely impede.
    And never forget: God doesn’t share his glory with another.
    As strange as that might sound that even includes Jesus’ mother.
