The news media reports that the Pope will resign, effective February 28th this year. Reports give the gist of his medical diagnosis as being frail. I suppose that is considered a health term for getting old. I know that my step day is frail because of his age and actions. Mom, is also frail to the point of being bed ridden. I'm sure he knows that he is lacking in the strengths and abilities to handle the powerful position he has been elected to. Time will tell how things turn out for the Catholic Church's future.
