Vatican Denies Report That Benedict Has Serious Illness

Vatican Flag
He still doesn't look in good shape, if you ask me.
Paloma Gomez Borrero, a correspondent at the Vatican, said Benedict’s health had “dramatically diminished over the past 15 days, “ adding that one can only conclude “he must have something very serious.”


The journalist added the Pope’s decision to resign was a "very bitter chalice" for him and that the former pontiff demonstrated "great humility" in doing so.

A bitter chalice? Really? I thought he couldn't wait to leave public life. Maybe he had unfinished business.

I wish the pope would write out this stuff... maybe do his memoirs while he still has time-- for the sake of history.
