Thanks, Pat. As an old man, I felt the Evangelicals had abandoned society to the secularists and failed to stand for the truth. Last year, I joined the Catholic Church because of strong men of faith like our local kid, now, Cardinal Burke. Maybe the church only appears in decline because it is being cleansed. I am now an elected official at the local and county levels and God has blessed mightly. He is not dead. We just treat Him that way.
"To govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me."

With those brave, wise, simple words, Benedict XVI announced an end of his papacy. How stands the Church he has led for eight years?

While he could not match the charisma of his predecessor, John Paul II, his has been a successful papacy. He restored some of the ancient beauty and majesty...
