Pope Benedict xvi has resigned. This indicates the great strain that this job has in the modern world. Today Popes are expected to travel the world, to always be on TV and to be active. This is hard for a 85 year old man. Even although Pope Benedict has been label as conservative he has continued the reforms of his predecessors Pope John 23rd ans Pope John Paul 2. It is hope the New Pope will continued to lead the church wisely.
