Pope Benedict to resign at the end of the month

Rome (CNN) -- Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28, his spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told CNN Monday.

The 85-year-old pope is resigning "because of advanced age," Benedict told the cardinals of the Catholic Church on Monday.

"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," the pope told the cardinals, according to the Vatican.

The last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415. He did so to end a civil war within the church in which more than one man claimed to be pope.

Benedict, the 265th pope, is the sixth German to serve as pope and the first since the 11th century. He became pope in 2005.

He has led church after the third-longest papacy in church history and during a time in which the church is declining in his native Europe but expanding in Africa and Latin America.

Benedict's time as pope has been marked with a series of scandals and controversies, including hundreds of new allegations of sexual abuse by priests.

Big time. May be related to the LA diocese lawsuit.

That really depends on how you define "participate." If you mean they knew of the allegations and did not go to the police, then a huge percentage. If you mean they actively abused kids or assigned them to a different assignment, then it's a very small amount.

Consider an average Catholic high school in 1961, with 8-15 priests on staff. I don't think it's outrageous that 1/3 of all Catholic high schools had some incidence of abuse. If there was an allegation, the parents would tell the principal (a priest) [note: many abused children did not go forward, understandably, because of embarrassment or fear], who would tell the Archdiocese (priests), and the priest would most often be sent away soon after or given a handslap/verbal reprimand and told not to do it again or else.

But I have to imagine that all of the priests on staff would have known of the allegation, especially if a week after, Fr. _____ was gone.

If you knew children are being sexually abused and you don't notify authorities, is that not a crime?

On a personal note, I am Catholic. I loved going to mass.

I can't bring myself to really celebrate as a Catholic anymore, and I certainly have stopped all monetary donations to the Church.

I just can't accept that my money would go towards the comfortable lifestyle of a child molester, or that it might be used to fund hateful anti-gay-marriage propaganda.

That's not what I believe, and I just can't support it.

I look forward to the day when the Catholic church has purged itself of their corruption, but I think that day is a long way off.

The sad thing is that, no matter the religious institution, it is populated with human beings and is thus utterly corruptible at every level. I think the first step towards a "clean" church is transparency. Complete and total transparency.

Since public schools have done the same thing, have you stopped paying your taxes? It's the principle, after all, right?
