The Pope conducted his last public Mass, how surreal is that?

Today was Ash Wednesday and the Pope performed his last public Mass.

How strange, we always like to say that history does not repeat itself. Well if you are a student of history you will know that six hundred years ago there was another Pope who resigned. It does not matter if you are a Catholic or an Agnostic or of a different religious belief, this is a monumental and historic event.

It is hard to believe that this past Christmas Eve, I stayed up and watched Midnight Mass performed by the Pope. He looked energetic & frail at the same time. Never in my wildest imagination would I have believed that this would happen.

Keep in mind I do not normally stay up for Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. Something made me say. let me watch it. Little did I know that I was watching history enfold in front of my eyes. 

In some respect it reminded me when  The Fed Chairman kept raising the interest rates and I kept telling everyone who would listen to me, that he is about to Tank the Real Estate Market. Again I would have never imagined that he would tank the World Economy. So we went into an economic dark period for about five plus years.

So the common thread, I see is that I was blindsided by the long term effects of the action of the Fed Chairman on how wast and global the effects became. So with that said I wonder what the long term ramifications will be and the effect it will cause globally?


No matter what this will cause, I am confident in a few years it will all be just a distant memory and a lesson that students of history will have to memorize. They will have to answer quizzes or test questions such as: who were the two Popes who resigned office? What year did they resign? Life will go on and the believers will be strengthened not weakened by the action of one man who happened to be a Pope.
