Pope Benedict announces resignation [CWN]

CWN - February 11, 2013

Pope Benedict XVI will resign from his papal office, effective February 28 at 8:00 PM local time.


"Dear Brothers, I have convoked you to this Consistory,
not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a
decision of great importance for the life of the Church," he said in a
statement addressed to cardinals. "After having repeatedly examined my
conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths,
due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of
the Petrine ministry."

"I am well aware that this ministry, due to its
essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and
deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering," he continued in his
statement, which was dated February 10 and released by Vatican Radio on
February 11. "However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid
changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of
faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the
Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in
the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have
had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry
entrusted to me."

This especially makes sense in context of his book "Light of the World", in which he discusses exactly this scenario.

A sign from above? Lightning strikes Vatican hours after Pope's shock resignation

The lightning touched the roof of St. Peter's Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, hours after Benedict XVI's shock announcement

I think this current Pope did a good job and will be remembered in a very positive way. I think he was a good man.

I was shocked at first but the more I learn the less I am shocked. I hope the new Holy Father is conservative and Traditional

I think it's humbling that he admitted he could not finish the course at his age, and considering his health. Can't believe in over 600 years no one has done so.
