Pope resigns after winning lottery!


THE LORD MOVES IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS

Yes, it's true. The pope's winning lottery numbers were:

1, 3, 10, 12, 23, 28 + bonus number 6   

On checking his lottery numbers on Sunday 10th February 2013 the pope decides:

"Holy straw sack. I will quit tomorrow!"

Katharina Greve's uncanny cartoon prediction, made over a year ago, is in the 2013 edition of the page-a-day calendar KARICARTOON (published by Espresso-Verlag) and it is, amazingly, on the page for 10th February 2013. The calendar features 365 cartoons by 80 artists. 

The pope duly announced his resignation, on the exact date predicted in Greve's KARICARTOON, Monday 11th February 2013.

The full story and the cartoon can be found via the Spiegel Online link at bottom right of this Poet-in-Residence blog.

The Lord moves in mysterious ways.

  1. A wonderful coincidence. (it's been a time of coincidences -eg, the near miss asteroid and the meteors over Russia).

  2. It's like waiting ages for a bus, then two come together.

  3. I can't decide whether this is tongue-in-cheek Gwil or whether it is true (not winning of course). Presumably from this I assume you are not a Roman Catholic!!

  4. It is absolutely true. Greve's cartoon showing pope winning lottery on 10th Feb 2013 is in the calendar. You can buy one for 10 €uro.
