Why does the Pope kiss the ground?
It is not a prescribed ceremony for a pope to do so. John Paul II, who traveled constantly throughout his papacy when his health was good, began doing it as a personal expression: he would kiss the ground of the country in which he had come to visit upon his arrival there. This was to show respect and reverence to the nation and its peoples as well as express his gratitude to them for inviting or welcoming him into their land.

well ill tell u 1 thing my first kiss was not the best. The time to kiss is when both ur eyes meet each other and slowly move in and that's not what happend to me. All i have to say is don't hug when ur supposed to kiss
A kiss is a sing of someone showing affection to you. For instence you would kiss your parents at night becasue you want to tell them that you love them and you want them to love you, you dont do it becuase you hve to, you do it becasue you want to. when you kiss a your loved one, it is the same thi…ng. You show them a sign of affection. You love them and they love you. (MORE)
The Pope is the Bishop of Rome, thus the worldwide leader of the Catholic church.
The current pope is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He took the name Pope Francis I . Pope Francis was 76 years old when he was elected to the head of the church on March 13, 2013. He was the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina before stepping down because of his age. Pope Francis is the first non-Europ…ean Pope of the modern era, and the first South American Pope ever. He is also the third straight non-Italian Pope. Pope Francis is considered to be a follower of the church's most conservative wing. Pope Francis takes over for Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI , who retired from his position due to health reasons on February 28, 2013, after about 8 years as Pope. The pope, in general, is the spiritual head of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. Francis I is the latest Pope to hold that position, which the Roman Catholic Church can trace back through history, through the early Church until the first 'pope' (although that particular title wasn't used at that time), Peter the Apostle. The Pope's residence is in a tiny independent country (the smallest in the world) within the borders of Rome, Italy, called the Vatican City, which also houses the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide.

Any institution requires a leader or visible hierarchy in order to function. This is natural to human nature and is thus present in human society and social groups. When Christ set up His Church He thus naturally gave it a visible hierarchy. The pope functions not only as a leader and thus rallyin…g point for an institution but also ensures the visible continuity between the Church and Its founder, thus maintaining the Church's authenticity of origin as well as maintaining its authority and jurisdiction in Christian matters. In addition to this, the pope has several offices proper to a leader. The pope is the top administrator of the Catholic Church and thus appoints and ratifies managerial positions (bishops, cardinals, manages rules and discipline, guards and safe checks beliefs and rulings, acts as the final court of appeal, calls councils, and leads the Catholic Faithful and guides the Church in the times It finds itself. In addition to this, Catholics believe the pope is further endowed with supernatural powers, specifically that of being able to definitively discern which beliefs are truly part of the deposit of the Catholic Faith if a question arises concerning them. The pope can thus, when acting in virtue of his papal office, and with the intent of addressing the universal Church on a point of doctrine concerning Faith and Morals, pronounce infallibly upon a doctrine of the Faith. This keeps the deposit of the Faith intact and preserves the Church from falling into heresy and helps avoid the formation of a dispute to the point it causes splinter groups within the Church that will eventually become heresies.

If you've had an enjoyable kiss with someone you like, you might wish to say, "Thanks, that was nice." Then, just hold hands and be kind to one another. Force anything.
Well this happened to me once and you just say that kiss was the best kiss I ahd in all my life, just say nothing, or just look at him that mean it was a great kiss ever, or get his hand and look at him. . lol if your really embarrassed, RUN!!!!
You simply hold her in you arms and look her in the eyes. But it always depends on how far alone you are in a relationship, in you only a little while in the kiss her lightly then back off and go about what ever your doing like it was no big deal
You kiss by puckering up your lips and you lean toward the person and you just kissed.
Grounding is a permanent and conductive path to earth. It must have enough ampacity to carry any fault current that is imposed on it. The grounding medium must have enough low impedance to limit the voltage rise above ground so as to operate the circuits over current device.
We really do not know why Jesus Christ chose Simon whom He renamed the Rock (Peter) to be the first leader of His Church on Earth.. John 21:15-17 states:. When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, …you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs.". He then said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep.". He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, "Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." (Jesus) said to him, "Feed my sheep.. Matthew 16:17-19 states:. Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.". The Catholic Church believes the Lord made Simon alone, whom he named Peter, the "rock" of his Church. He gave him the keys of his Church and instituted him shepherd of the whole flock.. The Pope is the senior pastor of 1.1 billion Catholic Christians, the direct successor of Simon Peter.. The Pope's main roles include teaching, sanctifying, and governing.. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 880-882. (MORE)
Ground is a direct connection to the earth. An electricity groundis a connection to a particular point in an electrical orelectronic circuit from which voltages are measured.
It all depends on what you are restricted to do while grounded. If you've had all your electronics taken away, try reading or doing something related to school. Or if school isn't your thing, try hanging out with your friends or family (they're not that bad).
ok...this is confusing..ur not supposed to answer a question with a question...hmm anywho...first question. "what do you do when u are kissing a guy?" well...plenty of stuff...depends on wat heats u or him up, what mood u or him are in, were u and him are at, who is around, and heck...wat the weathe…r is like..but...i know that...it is very pleasurably to move in to the guy..like press ur body up against his, wrap your arms around his upper shoulders/neck and trail one hand through his hair, its a huge turn on for both parties, moan softly if and ONLY if u are enjoying it also and that will probably turn him on. nibble his lower lip and trail ur hands down his chest...serously like ANYTHING will excite a guy or u. and besides...most of it comes as instinct.. ok...second question..."what should u do if a boy ask u to kiss him..." welll....i been there done that....and i hate it wen a guy ask to kiss me. u know good and well he wants too...but he wants ur permission and acceptance to kiss you...shows he has respect for u..or is very shy..or both...if u really like him i suggest u (if u want only thou) he is under ur control he has put himself out there telling u his feelings of how he wants to kiss u...so u can go up to him and do it slowly...pleasureable torture...hmm. and lean in some and he should lean in the rest of the way...the rest is up to u. or...if ur shy...and want him to kiss u...say "i want to kiss u to." or "i would like that" or something...good luck! and best wishes!. what should i do if boy asking me to kiss him?

I have no idea what you are asking. From 1978 to 2005 Pope John Paul IIwas our pope. When he passed away Pope Benedict XVI was elected and, when he retired, Pope Francis was elected in 2013.
read a book! write a book! listen to music! clean your room! Or you could think about WHY you're grounded so you won't make that mistake again.
things you probably shouldn't do... be shy and clumsy. take control when you kiss someone be too attacking and aggressive. you can get aggressive or passionate, but not overwhelming. keep your eyes open. you can keep them open, but i find it better when my eyes are closed and i just think of my bf
I said sorry and then went to my room so after that my mum let me out of my room and I wasn't grounded
A pope is the leader of the Catholic church, like a pastor for the Christian church or a Rabbai for the Jewish church.. Benedict the sixteen.
to teach us about God and be the boss of the church. but of course god is the #1 head of the church then the pope

The Quick Answer: There were no Popes before Christ, because The Office of Peter (the Papacy) was established by Christ while He was still alive. The Real Question: Who was the first Pope? The Answer: Peter, the Apostle of Jesus! Check out Matthew 16: 13-20, Cor. 3:11, Eph. 2:20, 1 Pet. 2:5-6, R…ev. 21:14. Improvement: From November 1268 to September 1, 1271, there was no pope as the conclave, considered the first conclave, was unable to elect a new pontiff. Therefore, the Church went nearly three years without a pope. During this period three of the twenty cardinal-electors died and one resigned. Pope Gregory X was eventually elected pope after impatient followers of the election reduced the rations to the cardinals to bread and water and removed the roof of the chapel where they were meeting, exposing the electors to the winter weather.

if you've ever been on a boat, you would know!. the term "kiss the ground" has been around since ancient times of sailing. back when the only way to get from one continent to another was sailing a ship or boat, life indeed was very precarious on the open seas! people signed on to ships for lucrativ…e trade, to find new lands, new opportunities and/or were just plain forced to in a slavery type situation, also known as being "shanghaied".. being on the open sea could and was very rough at times. some people never could get over their "sea sickness". others endured severe storms at sea. shipwrecks were abundant and it was known to all that braving these bold adventures may mean never returning. pirates were much more rampant due to the lack of global securities and some of the biggest wars during that time were also fought at sea.. so when the skilled and fortunate returned from their perilous journeys, it was known for some to step right off their boat and first thing, "kiss the ground", happy to just be alive after an ordeal at sea!

He must be a practicing male Catholic to become the pope but is usually chosen from among the cardinals.

The pope is the Vicar of Christ. He occupies the seat of Peter, and is essentially Christ's chief apostle and leader of His Church here on Earth. The pope is also the Bishop of Rome. The pope's responsibility is to lead the church. As you can imagine, the responsibilities are incredible and divers…se. Most popes will spend their time focusing on issues or topics that are of interest to the Church needs at that time. The pope essentially listens to the cultural pulse and speaks out in the name of Christ on issues. For example, Pope John Paul II spent much of his early years focusing on building up the resistance in Eastern Europe to Communism which eventually caused the collapse of the Berlin Wall. (MORE)

welll... it depends if you wanted to kiss him? 1.if you wanted to kiss him. who went in for the kiss first? if he did, then he obviously wanted to kiss you, so he must like you. if you did, and he tried to edge a away. then i don't think he would want to kiss you, but if he went in for t…he kiss also, he must have wanted to kiss you back. and also both of you can go in for the kiss at the same time. 2.how did it feel. during the kiss, if you felt awkard, then this isn't the right boy. but if you felt butterflies while kissing him, and also while kissing you smiled, then mabey this is the right boy for you. >if you feel him smiling then he obviously feels the same way. 3.were did you/he put his hands. if he is touching your 'bum' while kissing you, this is what boys do if they actually want to kiss you. if he didnt want to kiss you his hands may be round your waist, or mabey not touching you at all. this is all the tips i can give you. soo after reading this, and you think he likes you, ask him out. kiss him again.

it is not sin since he is our fellow brethren in Christ we should not do.
Start with a simple kiss. Then let it happend naturally. Start opening your mouth slowly, the other person's moves will control yours. Tip - In your first kisses with a different person don't use tongue. Your kisses will be different with everyone and you'll get your kiss style with the time.
Any validly baptized Catholic male can be elected Pope. However, before he could actually assume the office he would have to be ordained a Priest and consecrated a Bishop if the candidate was not already both of these.
Eat onions and cause yourself to develop bad breath. That should provide your desired results. oh yeh and be an idiot. idiot. lol
Well you can get a lot of things here are some 1. Kissing helps you prevent cavities 2. When you kiss your lover it can help improve your mood
Just either talk or just do nothing.Or if u feel uncomfortable with kissing just tell her that we should wait a little while before kissing again.If you are comfortable,just smile,talk,and enjoy the moment. MUAH ;* SMOOCH
It might be. It might also be the literal act of kissing the groundbecause you are happy to be home, as in a soldier returning fromwar. If it is an idiom, it would mean to fall to the ground so thatyour face hits it and looks like you are kissing it.
If you are a girl, you would just smile, and say that was nice, but if you are a boy, you would give her a hug and maybe another kiss, and say well are you ready to go in a polite way. Then she would probable say sure, unless she is jacked up, or not interested in you at all. Thanks :)
Because it is not God's way. God set up a system in which we can pray directly to Him. Jesus is our mediator, and go-between. No one else is needed.
There is normally only ONE pope. There have been two occasions whena pope has retired, one of which was Pope Benedict XVI in 2013, whoresigned over health concerns and was succeeded by Pope Francis(Francis I). Clarification: There have been about 12 papal resignations for one reason or theother i…n the 2000 year history of the papacy. (MORE)
You can't really do anything because it has already happened and you can't change the past but... I can tell you what to do after you find out. 1. Break up. He doesn't care enough if kissed another girl so what's the point of the realationship. 2. Go to your best friend and/or family for support. 3.… Listen to slow ADELE songs, eat ice cream and fudge, and watch comedy movies. (MORE)
A connection between an electrical conductor and the Earth. Grounds are used to establish a common zero-voltage reference for electric devices in order to prevent potentially dangerous voltages from arising between them and other objects. Also called earth .
If it's a serious relationship then you wouldn't be asking these questions and you would do whatever feels right. If you accidentally act like a T**T and she doesn't like it then she/he is not the girl/boy for you.
People kiss the ring of the pope, not his hand. If the pope extendshis hand so you can kiss his ring, anyone may do so. Any bishop orcardinal may also have his ring kissed. The custom is not commontoday, however.
