NEWS: Pope Benedict XVI to retire on February 28

Pope Benedict XVI

We interrupt our usual music feed to share this important news: Pope Benedict XVI, who is certainly an inspiration to billions of Roman Catholics around the world, will resign from his post on February 28 due to health reasons, the first pope to do so in six centuries.

And we quote:

“I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise”
