Dear Rich D: KEYS! To the kingdom of heaven . . . Look for KEYS in Wikipedia, under Peter. From Christ, Rich ! You rejected Matthew 16 :18, I guess. You're posting a lot of CRICKETS . . .

I answered that for you years ago. You are not open to the truth. Have fun eating the crickets. Try dipping them in liquid chocolate.

Now about Liszt. Why would you continue to lie about such an unimportant thing?

If no one man is the Church's Vicar on earth does he need the keys to the kingdom of heaven, Rich? Need them for what?

You say it would be heretical. I'm only wondering why you tell us that. It's very clear in Matthew 16 :18 Jesus wanted Peter to have charge of everything with keys like those. What's your biblical lesson for us? Don't be bashful.

My slip,

Not the Church's Vicar actually. A pope is CHRIST'S Vicar in this world.

You wear slips? Oh, of course - under the things that your mind skirts.

Tell us why you lie about the unimportant things and then why we should trust you with the important things.

Very clever,

I slipped, saying the Church's Vicar. He is Christ's Vicar on earth.

That's no lie. Nor have I lied before about "unimportant things." Sometimes maybe I didn't make myself CLEAR. But lie?

That's what a servant of the devil always does. You are an example of that, Rich

You made it clear that Liszt was a priest. You have not corrected your false statement given a chance to do so. You are a deliberate liar.

I'm SO repentant!!! Did you read The gospel of John some more? There's a wealth of truth in it. I'm SO surprised how you contradict it; making you a deliberate heretic. Ho-hum.

The resignation of Pope Benedict comes as a surprise.  Now all eyes will turn to the College of Cardinals, which will elect his successor by Easter (this year, near the end of March).

Although I am not a Catholic, the news of the resignation was profoundly disheartening to me.  Notwithstanding its flaws (or, more properly, some profoundly flawed leaders), the Catholic Church has been stalwart in standing as a bastion for eternal truths, even when they are not popular.

Here is just one example of why social conservatives will dearly miss Pope Benedict.  In written responses to questions...
