Pope Francis gave another hint that he may eventually resign like the Pope Emeritus:
Go here to read the rest. One of the more annoying features of this Pontificate is that the Pope routinely makes statements that contradict either Church practice or teaching. Except for a handful of Popes who have resigned under unusual circumstances, the Papacy has been assumed to be a lifetime appointment. If Pope Francis disagrees with this, he should man up and forthrightly state that he wishes to alter Church practice. For the past half century Catholics have been in an extended game of let’s pretend where Popes have changed Church practices and Church teaching, while Catholics have been called upon to pretend that the old practice and teaching has simply vanished down a memory hole, never to be mentioned again in polite Catholic circles. It is a tiresome game ultimately, and rather unconvincing.
