    pope Benedict mengundurkan diri?

    Pope Benedict in shock resignation: Pontiff, 85, is first in 600 years to stand down because he 'no longer has the strength to carry on'

    Pope Benedict XVI is to stand down as leader of the Catholic church, he announced today.

    In a decision that has shocked even his closest aides, the 85-year-old Pontiff said his health was 'no longer adequate to continue in office due to his advanced age'.

    He announced his resignation in Latin to a meeting of Vatican cardinals this morning, emphasising that leading more than a billion Roman Catholics worldwide requires 'both strength of mind and body.'

    The Pope's decision is unprecedented. He is the first to resign since Gregory XII in 1415, but no Pontiff in history has stepped down on health grounds.

    Although officials said there had been no pressure for him to resign, the internet is already awash with speculation that there was a more sinister reason behind his decision.

    Speaking in on of the Vatican's state rooms, the Pope today told cardinals: 'After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

    'I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only by words and deeds but no less with prayer and suffering.

    'However, in today's world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the barque of St. Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary - strengths which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.'

    He said he was making the decision in 'full freedom' but was 'fully aware of the gravity of this gesture'.

    A cardinal who was at the meeting said: ‘We listened with a sense of incredulity as His Holiness told us of his decision to step down from the church that he so loves.’

    A Vatican spokesman said he will officially retire at 8pm Rome time (7pm GMT) on February 28.

    Benedict will then retire to the Pope's summer residence near Rome before returning to the Vatican to spend the rest of his life in cloistered accommodation.

    As he begins his retirement, cardinals in Rome will begin the process of choosing a successor.

    Although the Pope's announcement this morning came as a huge shock to his colleagues, there have been rumours about his health since 2011.

    The Pope, who has appeared increasingly frail and walking with a cane, is understood to be suffering from a degenerative joint disease.

    In November 2011, Andrea Tornielli – a well-placed reporter from the Vatican Insider, a project run by La Stampa newspaper in Italy – said Pope Benedict found it agonising to walk even short distances due to 'arthrosis', thought to be an Italian term for osteoarthritis, in his knees, hips and ankles.

    Mr Tornielli said this was why the Pope began using a moving platform to address crowds during mass in St Peter’s Basilica.

    There have also been reports that the Pope was struggling to read texts.

    Benedict has previously stated that Popes who are unable to do their job because of ill health should step down.

    Benedict's deterioration during the last few months has been particularly noticeable and, according to his brother, he has been considering stepping down for some time.

    Georg Ratzinger, who still lives in the family's native Germany, said he had been having trouble walking and his age was weighing on him.

    'At this age my brother wants more rest,' he said adding that the doctor had warned him not to take any more transatlantic trips.

    Despite Benedict being open with his family, he appears to have said little to cardinals and staff at the Vatican about his ailing health.

    In a hastily arranged and, at times, shambolic press conference this morning, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said: 'It’s taken us a bit by surprise. We’ve had to organise ourselves very quickly.

    ‘We’ve had no warning of what the Pope was about to announce. The declaration is crystal clear and we need to go through it word by word.

    ‘The Pope says that he looked in a personal way and had a deep moment of reflection to consider the mission that he had received from God.’

    The decision to resign is highly unusual as the vast majority of incumbents die in office. He is the first pope to resign in 600 years.

    Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI when he took office at the age of 78 in April 2005.

    He succeeded Pope John Paul II, continued serving right up until his death despite suffering a number of health problems including cancer, osteoporosis and Parkinson's disease.

    He also survived two assassination attempts, one of which left him severely injured.

    Pope Benedict XVI's election was not without controversy. He was viewed as a deeply conservative man who had headed up the Church's modern-day Inquisition.

    He was also served in Hitler Youth during World War Two. Although membership was compulsory at the time, the issue dogged him through the early years of his papacy.

    However, once he took office he gained a reputation as a charming and shy man who won over many of his critics.

    He was only the second non-Italian Pope since 1522 and the oldest on election since the 18th century.

    He said after he was elected to the Papacy that he had prayed not to get the post and was hoping for a peaceful old age.

    As the powerful Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, he was already well-known within the Catholic world before his election to the top job.

    His image on elevation to the Papacy was one of an enforcer of Catholic orthodoxy and a cerebral disciplinarian who was unafraid to crack down on liberals and dissidents within the church.

    While Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), he gained the nickname 'God's Rottweiler' for his pursuit of Catholic theologians and clergy seen to stray from orthodox teaching.

    His pronouncements before becoming Pope included labelling homosexuality a 'more or less strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil' and saying rock music could be a 'vehicle of anti-religion'.

    The Pope has also proved himself to be strongly against the ordination of women as priests, euthanasia, abortion and the use of artificial birth control.

    Since his election as Pontiff his image has softened, leading him to be dubbed 'Benedict the Benign' in some quarters - but he has also attracted considerable controversy.

    The Pope's 2009 visit to Africa was overshadowed by a row sparked by comments he made while flying to the continent in which he rejected condoms in the fight against Aids.

    His decision in 2009 to lift the ex-communication on renegade English cleric Richard Williamson, who made comments suggesting only 200,000 to 300,000 Jews died in the Holocaust and none perished in gas chambers, also caused uproar.

    The Pope later issued a letter expressing his regret about the damage the affair caused to relations with the Jewish community, saying he had not known about Williamson's stance on the Holocaust when he took the decision to lift the ex-communication.

    Perhaps his biggest setback as Pope was during his visit to Germany in 2006 when he was caught in a firestorm of criticism from the Islamic world after giving a lecture at his old university of Regensburg.

    Quoting from an obscure Medieval text, he cited the words of a Byzantine emperor who characterised some of the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed, Islam's founder, as 'evil and inhuman' - remarks that touched off widespread anger across the Muslim world.

    The anger and violence sparked by his comments including attacks on seven churches in the West Bank and Gaza posed one of the biggest international crises involving the Vatican in decades.

    In Somalia, gunmen killed an Italian nun and her bodyguard at the entrance of a hospital where she worked, in an attack that some feared was linked to the outrage over the Pope's remarks.

    He later apologised, saying he was 'deeply sorry' about the angry reaction to his remarks about Islam and holy war, saying the text he quoted did not reflect his personal opinion.

    The Pope was made Archbishop of Munich and Freising in 1977 after a career as a university professor.

    He was born in the village of Marktl am Inn in Bavaria - he explained on a visit to Germany after his election 'my heart beats Bavarian'.

    His formative years coincided with the lifespan of the Third Reich. His family opposed National Socialism but did not participate in public resistance to the Nazis.

    He was forced against his will into Hitler Youth at the age of 14 and into the Wehrmacht at 16, serving in an anti-aircraft unit before deserting towards the end of the war.
    He was once viewed as a progressive within the Catholic Church and played a key role in the reforming Vatican II, the meeting between 1963 and 1965 that introduced sweeping reforms to the church.

    It is believed that his experience of Marxist unrest amongst students in the theology faculty in Tubingen, southern Germany, in 1968 where he was a professor contributed to his conservative outlook.

    In private, the Pope is known to be an accomplished pianist and a lover of Mozart.
    He is also a cat lover and, as Cardinal Ratzinger, was known to have looked after stray cats in Rome.

    POPE BENEDICT'S RESIGNATION STATEMENT IN FULL

    Dear Brothers,

    I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church.

    After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.

    I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering.

    However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.

    For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

    Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects.

    And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff.

    With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.

    Yup, selamat untuk Paus Fransiscus yang baru terpilih. Semoga dapat memimpin dengan baik dan penuh kasih seperti gelar nama Fransiscus yang diberikan.
    Namun, seperti dikutip CNN, pakar soal Vatikan, John Allen, berpendapat, nama Fransiskus ini merujuk kepada salah satu tokoh yang paling dihormati di Gereja Katolik, Santo Fransiskus dari Asisi. Menurut Allen, pilihan nama ini sangat menakjubkan. Dalam Gereja Katolik, tambah dia, ada beberapa sosok yang menjadi acuan utama, dan St Fransiskus adalah salah satunya.

    Nama Fransiskus, lanjut Allen, juga menjadi lambang untuk kemiskinan, kerendahhatian, kesederhanaan, dan pembangunan kembali Gereja Katolik. "Paus baru mengirimkan sinyal bahwa ini tidak akan 'menjadi sesuatu yang biasa saja'," kata dia.

    Paus Fransiskus selama ini dikenal sebagai sosok konservatif. Beberapa pandangannya mencakup penentangan atas praktik aborsi dan homoseksualitas. Meski menyatakan menghormati gay dan lesbian sebagai individu, dia menentang keras undang-undang yang dirilis pada 2010 di Argentina yang melegalkan perkawinan sesama jenis. Sebaliknya, Paus Fransiskus juga dikenal sebagai sosok yang sangat memiliki kepedulian sosial, termasuk mengkritisi masalah perbedaan kelas sosial kaya dan miskin.
