Strength needed to govern St. Peter's boat, says Pope

Cites incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry

Strength needed to govern St. Peter's boat, says Pope

Vatican City, February 11 - Pope Benedict XVI said on Monday after announcing that he would step down as pontiff on February 28 that "in today's world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the bark of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognise my incapacity to adequately fulfil the ministry entrusted to me".
