    Default Pope Benedict retiring

    Pope Benedict XVI announces his retirement

    A Pope has not stepped down or retired in 600+ years. More information I'm certain will be forthcoming, but in the meantime we can be praying both for Pope Benedict XVI and for the cardinals as they gather to elect a new Pope. We will be watching (and praying!) for our new Pope as certainly he will be met immediately with significant challenges for our Church.

    Our priest was discussing this last night at the Ash Wednesday service. He mentioned that it served as a good example for all that someone can step away from power and sacrifice that for the good of the church. I am praying as well for the wisdom for the powers to be as the Church is faced with such a divide and faces many challenges.
