    resigning, too.

    And the rest of the papers on the pedophilia scandal will be released... at the end of this month.  Right when the Pope steps out.  So is it finance, sexual scandals, or both?

        up rather than have him resign.  He can't be the first to have suffered from it (if, in fact, he does at all).  For a pope to abdicate, I'd think it (might) have to be an even bigger deal than health issues.

          When the Pope makes an appearance and stares silently over the crowd with vacant eyes, is unable to put a sentence together to say even a short simple prayer, much less lead a service...

          There could be no hiding of it. Not for long.

          Again, I'm only guessing.
