Pope Benedict XVI to resign at the end of February

Pope Benedict XVI will resign at the end of February, the Vatican Press Office tells Fox News.
The 85-year-old made the announcement Monday, saying he no longer had the strength to carry out his papal duties.

"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," the pope said according to a statement released by the Vatican.
