Pope Benedict XVI has announced he will step down on February 28th this year. The 85 year old pope says his health is failing and the ministry requires both strength of mind and body. Pope Benedict is the first to step down in nearly 600 years.

The news that Pope Benedict XVI will resign February 28th has shocked many around the world. Here in Philadelphia, there is surprise and disappointment by those who were looking forward to the Pope’s planned visit to Philadelphia in 2015. Locally, there is hope the new Pope will keep the visit to Philadelphia on the calendar. Pope Benedict is 85 years old and announced this morning that his health is failing and needs to step down.

In an open letter, Pope Benedict announced he will resign on February 28th. We have the complete letter posted on The 85 year old Pope is in failing health and has commented recently that he is in the final leg of life. After His resignation, cardinals will meet to choose a new leader for the church. We will have a new Pope by Easter.
