At last the flock (the sheep) of the Catholic Church have the opportunity to start to Wake Up !!! And what an Awakening !!! What a shock !! The Roman Catholic Church is just an extension of the Roman Empire. As The Empire fell (200-500AD), the architects of The Empire realised they could hang their robes on a different coat-hook and call themselves, "The Holy Roman Catholic Church". The "church fathers" (at Nicaea 325 AD) took the bits that suited them out of the very popular rising sect 'Christianity' (all dates and many of the doctrines were made up at this time - see Wiki on Nicaea) and they set about formalising & ritualising elements of the sect and fabricating other aspects to make sure the "subjects" would remain under their charge. Many elements of "Christendom" were 'mystified', ie: became 'unfathomable' ...You needed a priest to decode and explain, ie: you NEEDED one of THEM, thus assuring that THEY (the line of the Roman Emperors) were kept securely in power. It was assured that the people would encounter horrible tortures in the after-life if they didn't follow the Roman Catholic Church's credos to the letter.
The link above is a very informative article and gives the line of succession through the Roman Emperors from Romulus Augustus, reigning from 31 October 475 until 4 September 476 AD right through a line of German rulers ending with Emperor Francis II. It appears that the seat of The Roman Empire stayed with the Germans. How interesting.
