I'm sure you've all seen that the Pope has stepped down - the first to do so in half a millennium. He is said to be filled with "a profound serenity" after doing so and the Vatican are now looking at who will become Pope next in time to preside over the Easter celebrations.

What do you make of this turn of events?

I have two thoughts...

1. He's frail and you can tell his health is not good.
2. Too much controversy in the church nowadays and he probably is just too tired and sick to deal with it anymore.

I agree with the above too.

We were discussing this at work as there was a picture of him on the front of one of the newspapers and he just doesn't look well, even for his age there is something just not quite right, it wouldn't surprise me if he were ill.

ITA. He's frail and you can definitely tell that from just watching him. I think there's a lot of scandal in the church right now and it's really taken a toll on him.
