Pope Benedict XVI to Resign

In an announcement that shocked just about everyone, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will resign the papacy as of February 28, 2013.

Benedict said that he no longer has the strength to meet the duties and obligations of the office.

I'm not what you would call a fan of Pope Benedict, to be quite honest I'm what I call excessively neutral, but I give the man credit for having the courage to do what he thinks is best.

Here's hoping he has a long and peaceful retirement.
