    Default Pope Benedict to resign

    Pope Benedict to resign at the end of the month, Vatican says

    From Hada Messia, CNN
    updated 6:07 AM EST, Mon February 11, 2013


    (File) Pope Benedict XVI waves to the faithful as he delivers his Christmas Day message on December 25, 2012 in Vatican City, Vatican.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    • No reason was given for the pope's resignation
    • Benedict is the first German pope since the 11th century



    Rome (CNN) -- Pope Benedict will resign on February 28, his spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told CNN Monday.
    Lombardi did not give a reason for the resignation.
    Benedict, the 265th pope, is the sixth German to serve as pope and the first since the 11th century. He has led church after the third-longest papacy in church history and during a time in which the church is declining in his native Europe but expanding in Africa and Latin America.

    Default The Pope is Resigning

    Pope Benedict to Resign as of February 28
    ROME -- Pope Benedict XVI is to resign on February 28, the Vatican said Monday.
    The Pope made a statement in Latin during a small canonization event saying he doesn't have the strength anymore.
    Joseph Ratzinger said the 85-year-old became the 265th pope in April 2005.
    Not from the Onion. Real thing. Too many little boys molested probably.

    You and me both. There are some really snarky comments on Facebook about this. "Rat" deserting a sinking ship, how he missed the "hands on" experience of being a priest. Not a lot of positive commentary.

    He must have done something pretty serious. Popes don't resign even on their death bed.

    He says he's "too old". Whatever. Let's get somebody who doesn't have 1 foot already in the grave to run the show, eh?

    Too old? Whatever, if you look at what Pope John Paul did and the adoration he recieved, the countries he went to, the people he visited, that he respected other religions yeah this guy probably feels like he's just failing, AND he tried twitter.

    Oh and I'm well aware Pope John Paul and the Catholic Church have many flaws, I just saw good in him. I didn't like this guy from the moment he was elected.

    I agree. The pope dies in office... Thankfully now we will not have to see his dead body on the TV for a week.
