Pope Benedict XVI Says He Will Retire
The last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415. He did so to end a civil war within the church in which more than one man claimed to be pope.
"After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry," he told the cardinals.
For the most part, this was the Pope that Americans didn't really like . . . And his resignation puts any hope that Bishop Finn will meet with discipline for a misdemeanor conviction in Jackson County on the back burner.
Meanwhile, more than 110k petitioners are asking for Kansas City's Bishop Finn to step down.
