  • Uploaded on

Pope Benedict XVI appeared at his final weekly general audience today at St. Peter's Square in front of an estimated 150,000 people recalling moments of "joy and light" as well as difficulty during his eight years as pontiff. Benedict, 85, said he decided to retire after realizing he didn't have the "strength of mind or body" to carry on. Benedict meets tomorrow with cardinals for a final time before traveling to his retirement residence at Castel Gandolfo south of Rome.
