Although, I am not exactly sure what a Pope does(blame it in my indifference to know,the papacy is not one of my favorite reading endeavors, sorry ,Catholics but I still cannot find a reason why should I read about it) , I believe Benedict should have not been chosen to be a Pope to begin with. He was already way into his 70's when he became Pope and the Catholic church entrusted him to lead over a billion Catholics worldwide? That is quite a responsibility for a man of this age.The vatican knew that his days are numbered as a Pope even at that time when they chose him, and we wonder why he resigns because of health reasons? TSK TSK TSK!!!.... ! And this is supposed to be a spiritually guided unanimous decision by the people who are considered the "CHOSEN FEW"?
