You are kidding? Read Drudge every day. At least the Romans HAD gods & goddesses, they paid lip service to the divinity in & of the universe even when they doubted the gods! This age has sex, celebrities, sin, materialism, atheism, TV, movies and rock and roll and not much else. It is ungodly, truly ungodly. It is nothing, has nothing: The Age of the Human Ego. Art is now crosses floating in urine & feces on a painting of the Lady Mary - you think that the Romans would have allowed a statue of Jupiter to be put in a bottle of urine or feces flung on a painting of Juno? NO? I'd be more comfortable in Ancient Rome than this godless & materialistic society - ungodly and crass, that is modern culture.
"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...
