ROME -- Pope Benedict XVI is to resign on February 28, the Vatican said Monday.

The Pope made a statement in Latin during a small canonization event saying he doesn't have the strength anymore.

Quote:In a statement, he said: "After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry...

"In today's world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me."

Quote:From something I heard a while back and I never reveal sources, the next pope will be Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, the Archbishop of Durban, South Africa

Cardinal Napier, a Franciscan, has been tipped as a potential black African Pope for some time. Charismatic, humble and pastorally effective, he is a keen advocate of social justice, is doctrinally sound and is a vigorous opponent of abortion. He grew up on a South African farm with seven siblings during the apartheid era. He even opposed a papal visit to the country in 1988 saying it would give legitimacy to the white-dominated government. He has also been a firm backer of the Church’s teaching against condom use in preventing AIDS.

Quote:Dear Brothers,

I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church.

After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.

However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.

For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects.

And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff.

With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.

Does that mean he doesn't have the strength to wear his golden fish hat?

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

That was not what I was implying just to be clear. The AK took it that way, but no, I have heard he was going to be tapped to be the next pope.
That's all I was saying.

He's stepping down because he realizes Obama can also be pope. Opopa, if you will.
