The Vatican has announced that Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28th. This will mark the first time in 500 years that a Pope has stepped down.

At the age of 85 the Pope decided he was no longer able to fulfill the requirements of the Papacy.

… my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.                                                          -Pope Benedict XV

I applaud his decision to resign for the reason he stated rather than just hang around as a figurehead essentially be propped up and paraded about as some Popes have done. No doubt details of his resignation will emerge (then again, it is the Vatican, and they do know how to keep a secret) in the days and weeks ahead.

One solution to the fatigue the Pope suffered may have been to have him switch from Papal Bulls to Red Bull. After all, it does “give you wings” just like an angel!!
