Wow! My first reaction is that I salute the bravery and faith exhibited by stepping aside for some-one more youthful and healthy, although it's hard to know who will actually receive the mantle.

I trust the new Pope will be as wise and build upon the foundations he laid.

I find it a bit worrying, after hearing or reading somewhere that this Pope would actually be the last one.

Fletch, he won't be. By Easter we will have a new one.

"In Catholicism, there is no right or left but only orthodoxy and error." - Timothy Stanley
From my early teens, always been a big fan of Pope Benedict from the 'time' of Ratzinger.God bless this intellectual giant,this man of humility, this man of faith. Peter indeed!
I think I go with the line that Our Holy Father outwitted the wolves (no pun intended) with this bolt (almost) form the blue.
An interesting co-incidence is that our priest on Sunday (a fire and brimstone guy - yes they still exist in NZ:)mentioned that something big is brewing. Most certainly bigger than Our Holy Father's resignation methinks.
God Bless you Holy Father - the Pope of Christian unity

Very true - and you can extend that to all of Christianity.
