The privy council should not allow him to walk away, bit soft for mine, should die on the job

Piss poor German effort

Maybe now we can have a Italian pope again at long last [mail is African or S/American]

The problem: the Bishops elected a fossil. End of story. If you want a pope to hang around, elect a younger man. Oh, and one that doesn't have the taint of corruption is an even better idea.

The problem with that is the new Pope comes from the Cardinals, and you simply can't rise that fast through the hierarchy. You'll never see a young Pope.

RE: Pope Resigning.
Yes, you are correct. It is the system that has been in place for a long time. Like the other practices of the Catholic Church, there is a process and procedure. Just the way they have set things up, for better or worse.

I can't have sex with your personality, and I can't put my penis in your college degree, and I can't shove my fist in your childhood dreams, so why are you sharing all this information with me?

Here's some food for thought regarding what comes next. There's never been a situation where there's been two living Popes, and there's nothing in Canon Law that lays out the role for a former Pope.

That's one thing I'm curious as hell about. I could see the former Pope still wielding a lot of power in religious spheres even with a new Pope.
