Despite the sad news today that Pope Benedict the XVI is resigning (which I didn't even know was 'allowed') we must remember that a new Pope will be elected to take his place and the Church will live on! I say that because this moment doesn't need to feel like 'doom and gloom'. I'm actually quite hopeful and excited to see who will be chosen as the next Pope. I believe it will be someone even more amazing! Someone strong mentally and physically because these are HARD times that we're living in and the new Pope better be READY!!! The tasks ahead are not for the weary or weak!
