Pope's resignation, meditated decision


On November 13, 2012 Benedict XVI visited the “Long Live the Elderly” Nursing Home, run by the Community of St. Edigio in Rome. During his brief remarks, he talked openly about his age. 

“I come as Bishop of Rome, but also as an elderly person visiting his peers. I well know the difficulties and limitations of age.” 

The Pope wrote an emotional message for the XXI World Day of the Sick, which is celebrated on February 11, the day he announced his resignation. He asked Christians to see the face of Christ in the sick and that he now feels especially close to each one of them, referring to the sick.
