Watch it as it happens, not a still photo, but a video of lightening striking Saint Peter's Basilica on the very day that the Holy Father now Pontifex Maximus Emeritus resigns. It doesn't get more Twilight Zoneish than this my brothers and sisters!
BOMBSHELL UPDATE! I've been watching the Protestant Fundamentalist video I've posted below. It was videoed in 2012 and one of the Protestant Fundamentalist's prophecies that Pope Benedict will resign, yes he says this in 2012! and that even now (then in 2012) the college of cardinals were planning the next conclave! How clairvoyant is that! And on top of that, this Protestant Fundamentalist states that the pope after Pope Benedict will be an "anti-pope." And now we really must cue the "Twilight Zone Music" as Catholics should know that when there are two living popes, one of them normally is an "anti-pope." And my bet on this is that Pope Benedict is not the anti-pope, unless he does something bizarre. So the new pope will be the anti-pope, but maybe not! How fun is this?
So the bombshell that I proposing and the rumor I am pushing is that the Pontifex Maximus Emeritus indeed will be at the "Coronation" Mass of his successor the New Pontifex Maximus and my clairvoyance tells me that it will be on Saint Patrick's Day, but that the new Pontifex Maximus will not be Irish, or should I say, not from Ireland directly, not to discount that he could have an Irish last name, but I digress.
The Pontifex Maximus Emeritus prior to departing the throne of Saint Peter had changed the ritual of the "Coronation" Mass for the new Pontifex Maximus. This is one of the major changes:
Rites and gestures that are not strictly sacramental will take place either before a Mass or in a ceremony not involving Mass, Msgr. Guido Marini, master of papal liturgical ceremonies, told the Vatican newspaper Feb. 22.
One of the most visual changes, he said, would be the restoration of the public “act of obedience” in which each cardinal present at the pope’s inaugural Mass comes forward and offers his allegiance.
Will the Pontifex Maximus Emeritus be first in line at the "Coronation Mass" to do what the Pontifex Maximus Emeritus had ordered prior to becoming the Pontifex Maximus Emeritus? My crystal ball is a bit blurry on this but if it became crystal clear, how delicious would that be! Clairvoyance is such a burden but if not by the grace of God so go I with other non-clairvoyants or maybe not.
And here is the clairvoyance of another clairvoyant, but maybe not!
And the Protestant Fundamentalist's understanding of the clairvoyance of the Irish clairvoyant St. Malachy!
And from one of my most favorite clairvoyant comedians!
