    Pope Benedict XVI on Monday said he plans on resigning the papal office on February 28th. Below please find his announcement.

    Full text of Pope's declaration

    Dear Brothers,
     I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. 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. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today‚Äôs world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.
    Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.
    From the Vatican, 10 February 2013

     BENEDICTUS PP XVI

  • I would appear to be so.  It's being reported my all the major news sources.  BBC, USA Today, CNN, Reuters, etc.  I tried looking on the Holy See's official website but the pertinent page wouldn't open.  Maybe because of massive traffic?  

    Evidently the Holy Father no longer has the strength to continue as the supreme pastor of souls.  Lately every time I've seen him he appears more and more exhausted and frail.

  • I read on The Guardian that Peter Turkson is the favorite to replace him.

    Cardinal Turkson is the one who came out with that white paper last year calling for global governance.

  • Perhaps the new pope will be the one who consecrates Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and also the one who will convene and ecumenical council which has been prophesied.

  • I don't have a good feeling about this....not sure why.

    Perhaps the upside is that if an avowed, hardcore modernist like Mueller is elected it will make my decision to finally embrace sedevacantism a lot easier.

  • This is the Pope's resignation speech.

    the important part is this

    For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

    There is no reason to have a good feeling about this. Who here expects the modernists to elect a new pope who is not himself modernist?

  • I guess by the 28th, all of us become Sedevacantists. Whether we like to, or not.  :incense:
