Vatican City, February 18 - The archpriest of St
Peter's Basilica on Monday called the pope's decision to step
down a model for those "who cling to power".
Speaking to Vatican radio, Cardinal Angelo Comastri called
Benedict XVI's decision "evangelical", and said it should set an
example for "people who cling to power, incapable of loosening
their grip on the sceptre, and greedy to climb higher and
higher".
Last Monday the pontiff announced he would step down at the
end of the month, opening the way for a conclave of cardinals to
elect his successor in mid-March.
Comastri, 69, applauded Benedict for stepping aside as
"Jesus is calling another to the helm of the Church".
