Why did Benedict resign?


Terry has an amusing post here and Catholic in Brooklyn has some interesting points here.

My view is that the pressure from ultra traditionalists was too great and harming the unity of the Church - that it was them rather than "liberals" who were/are most problematic to Benedict.

Tina Beattie has an article about Pope Francis not doing enough for women here.

To be honest I find it best to avoid extremists from both sides.
