Very sad. When I was teetering between converting to Catholicism or not, it was the election of then Cardinal Ratzinger that brought me home to Rome.


It takes a lot of courage and strength for a man to realize that he has given something everything he has, that there is nothing left in the tank; and, for the good of those he loves, is willing to step aside. God bless our Holy Father. May the Lord give him comfort in the days to follow when his flock second guess him or react with anger or thoughts of conspiracy. May the Lord grant him peace after Feb. 28.

I'm so upset that I can't spell.

I think it was very brave of the Pope to admit he was no longer able to perform his duties. It must have been a very hard decision for him. At least he will be around to give the new Pope council if needed.

I was really sad when I heard this on the radio today.

I remember seeing him in Cologne, Germany for World Youth Day in 2005 and how exciting it was, yet I am deeply saddened as well.

May God Bless and strengthen Pope Benedict. Praying rosary theheart

So, does this mean the church recognizes two head of churches? Two infallible men?

The Pope is not an infallible man, hes a sinner too, like other Popes are.

I agree....

I believe there is much going on behind the scenes that few are aware of. 'Things' will begin to escalate rapidly, so I pray I will be ready for whatever the good Lord asks of me.
