Pope Benedict XVI

Pornocracy II: Electric Boogaloo

Pope Francis appears intent in his attempt to divide the loyalties of the Faithful between himself and Pope Benedict XVI, as Stephen VI did with his post-mortem trial of Pope Formosus.

The Challenge of Charity

As a young man, I was consumed by anger at the state of the world and hated those I thought responsible. Save me, Lord, from falling into that trap today regarding the Church.

A Wise Man Ends His Pilgrimage

Life and death are inseparable partners in the course of human salvation, and so it is fitting that we end the season celebrating the birth of Christ with the death of a holy man.

Pope Benedict XVI and the Ghouls

To me it seems clear that the Church’s problem will be solved as Lefties age out. This doesn’t mean I can’t imagine a better timeline on which Benedict remained pope.
