this really is a massive decsion. an unbelivble decsion, just to retire from the catholic church is really imenese. i just hope another pope will be appointed very very quickily.as easter is quickly upon us, and for people within the catholic community.a period of prayer is needed!! why were people not told of his intentions, ???

We just were. At last, a Pope who has decided not to go on until he dies; sensible decision. I wish him a happy retirement. Oh, and he hasn't retired from the Catholic Church, just from office.

A rather dangerous and unpleasant character. Much like the one who went before him. Might want to stay in the Vatican City if he wants to avoid awkward questions about child abuse and Jimmy Savile etc.

Re. Touchstone
And delta I find your remarks very offensive. There is no connection whatsoever with Jimmy Saville and there has never been any sexual rumours about Pope Benedict or "Pope JOhn Paul.You are stirring religious hatred on a public forum.

How can this Bloke (friendly ex Nazi SS soldier) speak out about the evils of Harry Potter and try to hide the instances of mass child abuse. The Catholic church is the richest 'business' in the world, there are kids starving in 3rd world countries. The pope has fingers full of gold, sell some of it and some of the land you own.You could wipe out starvation in one go. Noooo, you have other plans for kids! Religion, you can shove it!
