Pope Benedict XVI To Step Down

From InterAksyon

ROME - Pope Benedict will step down as head of the Catholic Church on February 28, the Vatican confirmed on Monday, apparently for health reasons.

In a statement released by the Vatican, the Pope said he no longer had the strength to fulfill the duties of his office. He will be 86 on April 16.

"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 recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me," the Pope said in a statement. "For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter."

The Vatican said the papacy is effectively vacant until a successor is chosen. A Vatican official said they expect the period between Benedict's resignation and the election of his successor to be "as brief as possible."

The German intellectual succeeded the long-reigning and popular John Paul II in April 2005 aged 78 after serving nearly a quarter-century as the Church's doctrinal enforcer, earning himself the nickname "God's Rottweiler."
