Happy 89th Birthday to one of my all-time favorite humans! God bless you, Papa Bene! #popeemeritusbenedictxvi #tiamopapa

Due to the failure of defining anything, the Second Vatican council is labeled as ambiguous among other things.
Why would then Cdl. Ratzinger give this statement? Because when you are not clear, whoever hears or reads your statements can interpret them at their own bias. Thus, there can be many ways of taking the statement rather than one.

And this is how liberalism was allowed into the Church. This was the door in which it entered: ambiguity.

Pope emeritus Benedict XVI praised the founder of the #EWTN Global Catholic Network during a meeting with some of the network’s Italy-based staff on Thursday. “Mother Angelica was a great woman, very brave,” he said Dec. 15.

He had greeted the editorial staff of the EWTN-backed Italian-language news agency ACI Stampa, who met him to give him a Christmas card.

Mother Angelica passed away on Easter Sunday 2016 at the age of 92.

Pope Francis on Saturday morning addressed the winners of the 2016 Ratzinger Prize, Msgr Inos Biffi and Ioannis Kourempeles, in the Vatican’s Clementine Hall.
Awarded by the Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation, the Ratzinger Prize is given as a sign of the Church’s gratitude to scholars and professors who have stood out for their scientific research in the theological field.
Msgr Biffi, a professor, and internationally renowned theologian and liturgist, was awarded the prize for his Opera Omnia, a collection of his writings, most of which are on theology and medieval philosophy.
The other winner, Prof Kourempeles is a member of the Orthodox Church, is associate professor in the Department of Theology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
In his address to the winners, Pope Francis began by expressing “great affection” and “gratitude” for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, as he “continues to accompany us even now in his prayer.”
“The depth of Joseph Ratzinger’s thought, firmly founded upon Scripture and the [Church] Fathers, and always nourished by faith and prayer, helps us to remain open to the horizons of eternity, thus giving meaning even to our hopes and our human responsibilities,” the Holy Father said.
The Pope spoke of Benedict XVI’s richness in “thought and magisterium, which knew how to center on the essential reference points of our Christian life, the person of Jesus Christ, charity, hope, faith. And the whole Church will be forever grateful.”
Pope Francis went on to congratulate the winners of the 2016 Ratzinger Prize; Msgr Biffi who received the award in recognition of his career as a “great theologian”, and Prof Kourempeles for his work in exploring the “richness of the encounter between Ratzinger’s thought and Orthodox theology”.
He concluded by praying that the Lord might always bless them and their “service to his kingdom.”

Nobody knew that God had an extremely important plan for these 3 young boys. Who could have known that the young Karol Wojtyla of Poland, would one day help bring Communism to its knees, become one of the longest-reigning Pontiffs in history, and become one of the most beloved and influential people and Saints in modern history. Who could have known that the little German boy, Joseph Ratzinger, would become a great theologian, and bring back the glory of traditions to the papacy, in modern times. And who could have ever seen Jorge Bergoglio, a young Argentine boy from Buenos Aires, become the first non-European Pope in 600 years, the first from the Americas, the first Jesuit, and the first Pope to take the Papal name of Francis! Nobody, not even themselves, could have seen this coming! Throughout their reigns, they have shown us that they have or had different, but unique and beautiful, ways of spreading the Gospels; St. John Paul II showed us hope, Benedict XVI showed us the beauty of our Faith and of our Traditions, and Francis is showing us the Church as loving, caring, and merciful. Each one of them is different, and yet, God chose them to be the Successors of Peter, to lead and teach the flock as Shepherds, and to be the Supreme Pontiffs of the Universal Catholic Church!!! St. John Paul II, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis, Orate Pro Nobis!! 🇻🇦🇻🇦🇻🇦🇵🇱🇩🇪🇦🇷🇵🇱🇩🇪🇦🇷🇵🇱🇩🇪🇦🇷🇻🇦🇻🇦🇻🇦 #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #FaithfulRomanCatholic #IglesiaCatolica #Catolico #PopeFrancis #PopeEmeritusBenedictXVI #PopeJohnPaulii #PapaFrancisco #PapaBenedictoXVI #PapaJuanPabloii #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #Pope #Papa #JesusChrist #HolyBible #VicarOfChrist #CatholicChurch #Poland #Germany #Argentina #Vatican #HolySee #vaticancity #papafrancesco #papafrancisco #vaticanolasantasede #

"People don't think the Liturgy be like it is, but it do" - German Theology Man #newbookcameinthemail #popeemeritusbenedictxvi #spiritoftheliturgy

The Celtic Cope and Mitre were made for Pope St. John Paul II, during his reign. St. JPII wore it on many occasions, including during his Christmas Urbi Et Orbi blessing in 1997 (pictured). Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI also wore the beautiful cope and mitre of his immediate predecessor, and Pope Francis has also worn the cope on many occasions. Even though he has worn the cope multiple times, Pope Francis has not worn the matching Mitre along, instead he has used a simpler (but beautiful) mitre. A matching Celtic chasuble was also made, and it has also been worn by the 3 Pontiffs (Check out an earlier post I made about the Celtic Chasuble a while back). It is a beautiful tradition for Pontiffs to wear the vestments of their predecessors. God bless the Church, Pope Francis, and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Sancte Ioannes Pavlvs II, Ora Pro Nobis! #RomanCatholic #EasternCatholic #CatholicChurch #IglesiaCatolica #PopeFrancis #PapaFrancisco #PopeEmeritusBenedictXVI #StJohnPaulii #PopeJohnPaulii #SupremePontiff #RomanPontiff #SuccessorOfPeter #VicarOfChrist #CelticCope #Tradition #PapalVestments #LiturgicalVestments #HolyVestments #OneHolyCatholicApostolic #UnaSantaCatolicaApostolica #JesusChrist #HolyBible #Pope #Blessed #FaithfulRomanCatholic

Yesterday I finally got the text from the HR Office of the gov't hospital I sent my application to informing me that I'll have my orientation this coming Friday. So I made this last night to celebrate and thank God for the opportunity to serve as a nurse in my home country. Last year, I had just arrived from a working holiday in Germany - after turning down job offers from two different care homes, when I decided to submit an application after hearing that there were job vacancies for nurses in my target hospital, where I had my post-NLE training. It took me exactly a year to wait - a year of constant following up, helping out in the family business and most especially, discovering my passion for lettering and calligraphy (and pretty pens like the Uni Signo), for this special moment to come. Lesson (re)learned: God's timing is indeed the best. So if you're working on something big and it feels like nothing's happening, trust that "God is working behind the scenes on your behalf". Just hold on and never give up! #fundamentalsofnursing #alltimeisGodstime #popebenedictxvi #popeemeritusbenedictxvi #kozieranderb #nursemode #nursinglife #nursing #unisignowhite #pigmentink #nevergiveup #holdontohope #holdon #allinGodstiming #godstimingisperfect #gratitude #grateful #thankful #cursive #cursivewriting #fotor #sketchbookexpress #rise

Nadie sabía que Dios tenía un plan extremadamente importante para estos 3 jóvenes. ¿Quién podría haber sabido que el joven Karol Wojtyla de Polonia, un día ayudaría a poner al comunismo de rodillas, convertirse en uno de los Pontífices más antiguos en la historia, y convertirse en una de las personas más queridas e influyentes y Santos en la historia moderna. ¿Quién podría haber sabido que el pequeño niño alemán, Joseph Ratzinger, se convertiría en un gran teólogo, y traería de vuelta la gloria de las tradiciones al papado, en los tiempos modernos. Y quién pudo haber visto a Jorge Bergoglio, un joven argentino de Buenos Aires, convertirse en el primer Papa no europeo en 600 años, el primero de las Américas, el primer jesuita y el primer Papa en tomar el nombre papal de Francisco. ¡Nadie, ni siquiera ellos mismos, podría haber visto venir esto! A lo largo de sus reinados, nos han mostrado que tienen o tuvieron diferentes, pero únicas y hermosas, maneras de difundir los Evangelios; San Juan Pablo II nos mostró esperanza, Benedicto XVI nos mostró la belleza de nuestra fe y de nuestras tradiciones, y Francisco nos muestra la Iglesia como cariñosa, cariñosa y misericordiosa. Cada uno de ellos es diferente, y sin embargo, Dios los eligió para ser los Sucesores de Pedro, para dirigir y enseñar el rebaño como Pastores, y para ser los Sumos Pontífices de la Iglesia Católica Universal !!! San Juan Pablo II, el Papa Emérito Benedicto XVI, y el Papa Francisco, Ora Pro Nobis !! @Regrann from @vaticanolasantasede - #Repost @faithful_roman_catholic
