Pope Benedict Resigns Effective Feb. 28th (UPDATED with video)

I was floored to flip on my computer after personal Morning Prayer and to see the news.

I feel I should note the momentous event, the first resignation of a pope in centuries.  But, to be honest, I do not think I have any edifying comment to make at this time.  I think very highly of Benedict, but you all probably already knew that.

So I will confine myself for now to saying I am praying for Pope Benedict and for the church.  Lord have mercy upon us . . .

Here is a video of the Pope making his announcement to the Consistory of Cardinals:
