Talk about trolls.
I'm not really surprised. Catholics against Pope Francis have now condemned Pope Benedict for resigning, based upon excerpts from a new interview and book to be released at the end of August. In part, Benedict said his retirement was because he was exhausted and couldn't face another grueling trip. Some sources say that was his sole reason. Fact is, Pope Benedict felt a need to clarify his reason(s) for retirement to dispel rumors he was forced to do so in the first place. Read an honest report of what Benedict said he did and why he did it here. His critics are commenting on pull quotes - even before the book is released.
It's amazing. One know-it-all asks 'is this the Joseph Ratzinger we know'? An understanding person with the most minute degree of compassion and insight may have anticipated such a move by Pope Benedict. Several times he wished to retire as Cardinal Prefect of the CDF, yet stayed on because of Pope John Paul II's example and the Holy Father's desire that he keep working. Benedict is an old man who has worked extremely hard all of his life, and his frailty became more and more evident as Pope.
How do these people get that far out?
