    probable. He will go to a monastery, possibly close to or within the Vatican, and be free to write- apparently something he did extensively. Associated with his years in teaching.

    He does look frail, the speculation has been that he would not be able to do Easter services, so they will be working to get the new Pope installed in time to perform.

    I am beginning to appreciate those Papal robes and head gear. Gotta be a weight problem when you are over 80 yo.

      QEII does weight training so that she can wear the crown at formal events. If she lives as long as her mother did, she'll outlive Prince Charles.

      So yes, when you're getting up in years, ceremonial garb can become problematic, especially if you've got to carry a heavy Crosier.
