Pope Benedict XVI

The statement from the Vatican says he’s retiring because of his age. Pope Benedict XVI is 85. The Pope believes his body is no longer strong enough to carry out the duties of his office. Since I can remember, I’ve been intrigued and mystified by the Catholic religion. I understand the Biblical basis and respect its followers. However, I’ve never understood why Catholics hold one man in such high esteem.
