Vatican City, February 11 - Pope Benedict XVI said
Monday he was quitting at the end of February "for the good of
the Church".
The 85-year-old pope said he had been "feeling the weight of
the pontificate" and had been "thinking for a long time" about
the almost unprecedented decision, according to Vatican sources.
Benedict had never given any hint he might step down, a move
only taken by one of his predecessors, Celestine V, in 1294.
Last year the pope started using a cane on occasions and
recently he appeared to have trouble reading the text of an
address he delivered in Rome.
