No pope, Catholics can do what they want now, its anarchy. Free pass to sin for the next few weeks. Also do you think the Orthodox and Anglican church will ever re-unite with the Catholic church?

Aren´t the Anglican and Orthodox churches actually Christian though? I don´t see why they´d want to merge with the papists

you have a very interesting view of how Catholics work.

Orthodoxy is best Christianity. Anglicanism is lost to women, gays, and 'modernists.' Catholicism is going the same way.

Catholic here. I wonder who the new Pope will be. Rather interested. Everyone says Ouelett, but I can't see it. Others say Turkson. Either way, should be interesting to see.

>>8834483 technically the Catholic church and Eastern Orthodox are both Roman Orthodox and Catholic, the nomenclature we use now is a result of the division. The Anglicans are Catholics but also protestants. But essentially they are Catholics without the Pope. Only after the Byzantines lost so much of their power did the Pope become the main guy of the Catholic church. Before the Catholics were ruled by the pentarchy, the patriarchs of Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem. The patriarch/bishop of Rome (pope) was in charge of all the Western Roman Empire, so after the East-West split, the power of the pope was so powerful because he was the only one in his position in the western church. There was a few times when the Emperor of the Byzantines didn't agree with the Patriarch of Constantinople and instead got permission or advice from the pope.

>>8834624 Same. I say sell some property and goods. The church is effectively the worlds richest organization. They have the power, with a few words, to help the AIDS crisis. People forget, many Catholics reside in central and southern Africa. Just saying condoms are allowed could help so much. It won't happen, but one could wish. Either way, I hope there is some good that comes with the new pontificate. I wonder what it is actually like to wake up, and realize your word effects so many. And the knowledge he must have to hold. It's interesting to me. >>8834652 I don't care if he is black, white, Latino, yellow, whatever. I just want a pope who will focus on bringing a bit of a more realistic/modern approach, whatever that may entail, that benefits a few more people. PJP II was the man. He did such good things. We need someone like him again, whoever it is.

>>8834726 well, its a long process. You have to be male, and catholic. You cannot be married if you are to move beyond deacon. You will first get a degree in theology, usually a PhD, very good to try and spend some time in Rome, learning latin is very helpful. Eventually you will be declared a priest, then you have to be a bishop. You will have to wait until the current bishop dies, you will then be chosen by the pope as a bishop, and be assigned a diocese to look over. After that it gets harder. There are only 120 people in the college of cardinals. You have to wait until a cardinal dies, and be handpicked personally out of the thousands of bishops to take his place, then you have wait for the pope to be removed from office for whatever reason(death usually), and then after a short period the college of cardinals will select some candidates. Every day the college of cardinals will meet to elect the new pope, and you must be chosen out of the cardinals with a 2/3rd vote, and that goes on until someone is picked(if it goes beyond 30 voting sessions, then its just a majority) or you could just be a catholic man, but its been almost a thousand years since a non cardinal was picked, so what i said above is pretty much obligatory

>>8834733 >realistic/modern approach, whatever that may entail Fuck you. Why the euphemisms?? We all know that by 'whatever that may entail' you really mean "tell me my promiscuous lifestyle and support of homosexuality is OK". No thanks. There are already other gay- and sin-friendly churches, don't shit up the Catholic church.

Also, to the spaniard people 'should' do what the pope says. He is completely infallible in all matters of spirituality, so pretty much what he says goes. Most people just go to church and follow the scriptures and their local church community. This works as well, as the pope won't be deviating from scripture(Its complicated, but technically if a pope denounced scripture he would be right, but there would never be a pope that would do that)

>>8835289 I actually have a question. When exactly Benedict XVI lost his infallibility? >When he decided to abdict? >When he publicly said he would abdict? >When he oficially abdicted his position? I'm tempted to go with the last one, but should the Church's bureaucracy influence on wheter he still is infallible or not?

1 hours later 8835447 Anonymous
>>8835391 After he officially abdicated he lost infallibility because it was at that point that he was no longer pope. Before that time he was still pope.
