Temple Mount Bulge

Temple Mount Bulge
Recently Israeli archaeologists have warned of the imminent collapse of the southern wall of the Temple Mount.  It should be noted that the portion in danger of collapse is actually a relatively small part of the 313-meter long wall.

The Last Pope? - Steve Elwart - Koinonia House

The Last Pope? - Steve Elwart - Koinonia House


People in the administrative arm of the Roman Catholic Church, called the Curia, say that pope benedict XVI is in poorer health than is publicly known.

That the Pope is in frail health is not surprising—the Bishop of Rome will be eighty-five years old this year. In fact, given his age and his work schedule, it is surprising that Benedict is still as active as he is. Yet, the Pope no longer meets individually with visiting bishops and he has started using a moving platform to keep him from having to walk the length of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Rumors are swirling among Vatican watchers that the Pope may even resign this spring when he turns 85. This, however, seems doubtful since all the rumors seem to stem from a single, unsourced, article in the Italian Daily, Libero. If Benedict does resign, he would be the first pope to willingly do so in 700 years.
