    The Pope probably does not have a brain tumor, but in good health he’s not.
    I watched a video clip of his latest Wednesday General Audience in St. Peter’s Square. The camera caught him for a second holding his head and squirming in pain. The expression on his face was of agony. No one who is well sits and does that! Granted, it lasted only seconds, but it showed he’s not doing all that well. Reports from some Bishops at the Synod reported that he looked very pale and exhausted most of his appearances.
    He’s going to be 79. He’ll either die, or maybe even resign, in the next 1-2 years.

    The Pope is 79 and has one lung. Of course he’s not in perfect health. Looking pretty good though for an “old man”.
    We all get closer to death every day we wake up.

    “Change the church”? In over 2 1/2 years and after two synods, a miniscule number (i.e. divorced, civilly remarried and who care) of Catholics may now consult with their pastors before participating in their parish, their annulments can be decided by one instead of two tribunals (did the two ever disagree?), and priests can now forgive abortion (was it ever not so?). The latter was an excuse for this pope to grant faculties to the neo-fascist Society of St. Pius X.
    This pope first created a Secretariat for (his) Economy and then a Secretariat for (PR) Communications just to show us his priorities.
