More clarification today about the status of Pope Benedict XVI as he goes into retirement.  He will be take the title of "Pope Emeritus", continue to be refered to as "His Holiness Benedict XVI" and will also continue to wear white (it had been expected that he would revert to black).  He will no longer wear the papal red shoes, and will drop the title of Bishop of Rome entirely.

I foresee whoever the new Pope is having an uneasy time with the previous Pope virtually living on the premises and keeping much of his Papal dignity. For the first time, I can begin to see Boniface VIII's point of view.

His papal ring will be destroyed, his Swiss Guard will stop guarding him promptly at 8 PM on Thursday (they will be replaced by Vatican Police) and he will be in seclusion in his monastery within Vatican walls once his rooms are completed, but how far his shadow will reach into his successor's office is yet to be seen.  His departure in present circumstances cannot be regarded with anything but unease by the church.

Less than 24 hours are left to the papacy of Benedict XVI.  His Holiness gave his final public audience at the Vatican today in St. Peter's Square.  He will meet with the cardinals already in Rome before leaving the city tomorrow.  The Pope will have one last public appearnace on the balcony of Castel Gandolfo, the papal summer residence south of Rome later in the day, before he steps down from the Chair of St. Peter at 8 PM.

A vile priest has burned a photograph of Benedict XVI during a mass in protest against his abdication.
According to this article, half the congregation walked out in protest.

Benedict XVI has revealed that he abdicated due to a "mystical experience" revealed to him that this was God's wish.

There has been some additional clarification about why Benedict XVI abdicated.  Unlike what the stupid title of the article suggests, Pope Benedict XVI had some rather serious medical issues dating from before he even became pope that led to him cutting his papacy short.  It makes much more sense now, although I still don't think it was the right thing to do.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has announced that he is in the closing phase of his life.  The former Roman Pontiff has been described by friends as being increasingly frail.
