    I’ve read pope benedict has facebook account too.
    Facebook founder by the way is an atheist.
    This one atheist has connected much more people on a daily, even on a minute, basis than all the religions can ever hope to accomplish.

    He will be known as a trail-blazing pope. Despite his frail health and old age, he has the clarity of mind and courage of spirit to shake a bit the papacy and the entire Catholic world. His desire to spend the rest of his life in prayer is admirable. May the Lord give him the serenity in the twilight of his life.

    Take note very well of this last message God-fearing and God-seeking Roman Catholics, this is as important, poignant and true as a dying man’s last words.
    Make the Lor Jesus Christ as the center of your lives, not Mary or anyone else, not even your church but Him alone. Know the Lord Jesus Christ by reading, studying and living the pure and unadulterated teachings of the Bible as this past pope have always urged you to do.

      Alam naman namin yun. I don’t understand why other sects keep insisting that Catholics are treating Mary as god. For the Nth time, NO WE DON’T. Nakakasawa na rin magexplain eh.
      Ang Pope na rito ang nagsabi.

    These 3 musketeers shouldn’t have taught the Pope to tweet.
