    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict stunned the Roman Catholic Church, including his closest advisers on Monday when he announced he would stand down in the first papal abdication in 700 years, saying he no longer had the mental and physical strength to run the Church through a period of major crisis.
    Church officials tried to relay a climate of calm confidence in the running of a 2,000-year-old institution but the decision could lead to one of the most uncertain and unstable periods in centuries for a Church besieged by scandal and defections.

    could it be he is old and sick? ... he doesn't look healthy at all

    or.....

    did a century old child molesting case come up?

    there's always a serious reason for this sudden change....
