Pope Benedict announces imminent resignation: Time to elect a younger pontiff?
Apparently, at 85 he feels he’s too old to fulfil his papal duties on grounds of ill-health. The first Pope to resign his office in generations, he’ll be gone at the end of the month.
Now, i’m not at all religious & have no real interest in this story, but it does seem prudent that a much younger candidate be considered, in the interest of longevity if nothing else.
What say you?
