Pope Benedict’s resignation announcement text

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/world/article/pope_benedicts_resignation_announcement_text

Dear Brothers. I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry.
