Breaking News: The Pope To Resign

I was shocked to read this a few minutes ago!

Pope Benedict XVI, elected in 2005, has resigned as pope. His resignation will take effect on February 28th. He has done so because of weakening health and strength. This rarely happens, and hasn’t happened since 1415. I can’t help but wonder if there is something else going on here. I am Catholic and not a conspiracy theorist at all, but I am just curious if we won’t know more in the coming weeks.

We pray for the continued health of Benedict XVI and for the election of the next pope in the coming weeks.
