First he was chosen on 3/13/13 at 7:06 PM local time which makes 6 hours plus 66 minutes or 6:66 if you're into that sort of thing, and I remember thinking it interesting/curious that a couple hours before he was elected a seagull perched on the Sistine Chapel chimney where the smoke rises to announce a new
Also, back on the day when the previous Pope resigned there was the interesting event of lightning striking St. Peter's basilica.
And now we get this interesting message:
Pope's Peace Doves Attacked By Crow and Seagull
A seagull and a crow swept down on the doves after they were set free from the Apostolic Palace during the Pope's weekly Angelus prayer.I'm sure there are those, even Christians, who will dismiss this as mere coincidence and anyone who takes it seriously as superstitious. Seems to me if you know that God is in charge of absolutely everything that happens in this world we should know that it's all from Him and it means something, even if what it means isn't necessarily apparent.
Tens of thousands of people watched as one dove struggled to break free.
But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. It is not clear what happened to the doves [except that they] flew away.
What according to Scripture is the message of the Antichrist going to be to the world? "Peace, peace" of course.
1 Thessalonians 5:3: For when they shall say Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
This Pope is going further than any previous Pope in peeling off whatever Christian veneer has managed to stick to the Roman pagan institution despite its Antichrist nature. Atheists are now supposedly accepted by God, and there's nothing wrong with homosexuality, or I'm sure the next papal comment on that subject will make that clear if it isn't quite clear yet. He's also attacked capitalism, the most successful economic system in the world, which is of course connected with Protestantism which they are still trying to bring down. They've just about succeeded it seems to me.
The Popes take to themselves the right to rule the world, which very few know is on their books, and that includes the right to put to death those who disagree with them, which was the basis for the Inquisition that murdered some 50 million Bible believing Christians plus another 17 million Jews, Muslims, witches and sundry others.
I could go on but this is supposed to be about the Pope's peace doves being attacked by a couple of ritually unclean birds (according to the Old Testament). Sure seems like a message from God to me, but who's listening except those who already know the message?
