Pope Benedict XVI - Advocate for Freedom

Today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would be resigning from the papacy, effective at the end of this month. This is not unprecedented throughout history, but is certainly so in the modern era. In fact, it has not happened since 1294. Reactions seemed mostly to fall into two camps: shock or a complete lack of knowledge and or caring.
