Newsflash: The Pope Is Old

The Associated Press puts itself in the Christmas spirit by openly salivating for the Holy Father's death or resignation. It appears --stop the presses-- that Benedict the XVI is 84, and acts it. Sheesh.

I love this remark of his they quote, though. From Light of the World, when he was asked about resignation in the face of Church difficulties.
One can resign at a peaceful moment or when one simply cannot go on. But one must not run away from danger and say that someone else should do it.
Bless him!
