In my opinion, this resignation is the sign of a modern Pope.

None of this not knowing he’s sick until he’s dead, hanging on no matter what, a shadow of your former self, all that.

Very gutsy, practical, pragmatic decision. No fuss, no muss, he’s got a job to do, can’t do it, says sayonara.

Smart guy, good for him, good for us.

Go Benedict! (Meant as encouragement, of course, not get outta here)
