Report: Pope Benedict XVI to Resign February 28th
'"The pope announced that he will leave his ministry at 8:00 pm (1900 GMT) on February 28," said the spokesman, Federico Lombardi.
The announcement was "a bolt from the blue", said Angelo Sodano, a senior Vatican cardinal.
Last year the Pope started using a cane on occasions and recently he appeared to have trouble reading the text of an address he delivered in Rome.
There was no immediate official comment from the Vatican.
In November last year, he declared that it is "beautiful to be old".'
