Rome, February 11 - Pope Benedict XVI has shown
"great courage" in saying he will resign the papacy at the end
of the month, Italian President Giorgio Napolitano said after
the pontiff's shock announcement Monday.
Napolitano said he had "the greatest respect" for the
decision, taken because the 85-year-old Benedict, elected seven
years ago, said he lacked the strength to do an increasingly
demanding job.
During their last meeting on February 4, the president said,
"it was clear that (the pope) was tired and aware of fatigue
which was hard to bear".
