Tradcatknight: Was Pope Benedict Driven from Office by the “Wolves” He Mentioned? (YES!)
History will forever record the shocking words of the newly elected Pope Benedict XVI at the Mass for the inauguration of his papacy: "Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves." Those words turned out to be a prophecy.
The “normalists” who insist that nothing is amiss with the current pontificate — a group whose numbers are rapidly diminishing — profess to be undisturbed by the most unprecedented manner in which Benedict left the Chair of Peter: retaining the papal name, the papal garb, the papal insignia, the papal residence in the Vatican and, so Benedict says, the “passive” aspect of the office (prayer and contemplation) as the first “Pope Emeritus” in Church history. If a bishop emeritus is still a bishop, is not a Pope Emeritus still a Pope?
