Report: Pope was considering quitting for months

Published: 02.11.13, 14:08 / Israel News

The pope's brother, Georg Ratzinger, says the pontiff had been advised by his doctor not to take any more transatlantic trips and had been considering stepping down for months.

Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday that he would resign on February 28. Talking from his home in Regensburg to the news agency dpa, Georg Ratzinger said his brother was having increasing difficulty walking and that his resignation was part of a "natural process." "His age is weighing on him," the 89-year-old said of his 85-year-old brother. "At this age my brother wants more rest." (AP)
