Pope Steps Down
2/28/2013
 
 
 

History made today as Pope Benedict the 16th stepped down as the leader of the Catholic Church.  He waved to the crowds gathered in the Vatican Courtyard before leaving by helicopter to the Papal Summer Residence.  He will be relocated to a small Monastery within the Vatican Grounds In a few weeks.  Many people didn't really know how to react to the Pope's resignation.  After all, it's something that hasn't happened in over 600 years.  For the faithful in our region they did what they felt was right and celebrated Mass in the Pope's honor.
