When the soon to be ex-Pope carts in the U-Haul for the final trip out, in the off chance he decides to raid the Vatican of all Renaissance masterpieces, elsewhere known as IOR collateral, here is one possible New Normal replacement.

Cheer up, Brian. You know what they say:
Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble. Give a whistle.
And this'll help things turn out for the best. And...
[music]
Always look on the bright side of life.

They will need to pay up; Kashya Hildebrand bought it already.

“My interest in the Lamentare de Merkel purchase was motivated by the fact that interest in New Normal Art was at a record low and almost ridiculously cheap when priced in CHF.”

Fatima was a legit apparation (unlike the medjugojre thing) where 3 secrets were given to children. 1 and 2 predicted the world wars, the 3rd has some ambiguity to it. Some applied it to JPI or JPII but it may apply to B16.

The line... "Bishop dressed in white 'we had the impression it was the holy Father' [B16?]... Going up a steep mountain.. [he explicitly said going up a mountain to retire and pray]"
The rest may give allusions to violence or some sort of altercation.

The major problems of the church are from within. They've really shook the faith of their people and clerics practicing heterodoxy or heresy.

Wed, 02/27/2013 - 01:10 | Link to Comment New World Chaos
New World Chaos's picture

Some conspiranoids believe the third secret of Fatima was about a widespread loss of faith due to pedophilia, satanic moles running the church, and "lesbian marxist pagan nuns" (as Saint Barnhardt would call them).  She's back on the net, BTW:  http://www.barnhardt.biz.  I anxiously await her epic rants.

There is also talk about the next pope supposedly being the Antichrist.  Anyway, the theory is that prophecy is so damning that the Church tried to bury it but the Mary cult (and conspiracies) kept growing so they released a fake 3rd prophecy which is ambiguous and non-apocalyptic.  http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/profecias/esp_profecia05.htm

Also check out the prophecy of St. Malachy (if you haven't heard this already). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophecy_of_the_popes  The next and last pope will supposedly be:

Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills (Rome) will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.

One of the main contenders for pope, with a lot of positive media coverage, has called for a world government, world tax, and world central bank: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-02-12/lightning-strikes-vatican-after-papal-resignation-video#comment-3237454

In light of the prophecies (and the lightning strike on the Vatican following Benedict's announcement; see above link) I figured that Benedict's resignation was about the satanic cabal was setting up the next Pope to be the false prophet.  They will probably try this anyway, but now it seems that the timing is due to some obscure EU committee (http://itcss.org) which has charged the Pope, the Queen, and Stephen Harper with genocide of Native American children:  http://americankabuki.blogspot.co.nz/2013/02/final-verdict-is-rendered-in-first.html

The Church's complicity in assorted crimes against humanity has been an open secret for decades.  Same with pedophilia.  In fact, the pedophiles in Brussels are probably some of the Vatican pimps' best customers.  So why now?  The real reason is that "Vatican wealth and property is to be seized".  The Eurocrats require Vatican gold to keep their bureaucratic monstrosity lurching along for a few extra months while they cash out.  The real, real reason is that the whole global ponzi is imploding; the satanists who secretly rule the world can no longer increase their power and decadence at our expense, and therefore they see no choice but to turn on each other.  The real, real, real reason is that the Universe itself has decided that it's time for these fuckers to go, and divide and conquer will aid in their destruction.  "Who the gods would destroy, they first drive insane".

Monti was only Jesus-like in one thing...ridding the 'Temple'-Vatican from the (German) moneychangers...so that other moneychangers might take their place.

Maybe also liked dining with criminal tax farmers too, but i doubt they were in the mood for contrition.
