Resignation Valid

Pope Emeritus Benedict lays down the law on his resignation:

B16 wavingThere is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my renunciation of the Petrine ministry.

(T)he only condition for validity of my resignation is the complete freedom of my decision.

I still see and read references to “abdication,” which is what a royal person would do.

We are used to seeing Benedict in white. It continues. I never really wondered why.

At the moment of my resignation, there were no other clothes available. In any case, I wear the white cassock in a visibly different way to how the pope wears it. This is another case of completely unfounded speculations being made.
