    Catholics: Your views on new pope

    An exhausted, tired non-Catholic

    As a life-long Protestant, I first thank each and every Pope who over the years has dedicated his life to directing the Holy Catholic church. Hearing this morning of the current Pontiff's decision to retire, I can see why. I live my life with severe sleep apnea -- and what life is like constantly exhausted. I applaud his decision and some days wish I could resign! I won't, but his fortitude will always be a model for me--and a source of inspiration when times get tough.
