Wednesday, February 13, 2013 - 12:35pm

Crowds of worshippers at the Vatican cheered Pope Benedict the 16th earlier today as the 85-year-old made his first public appearance since he announced his resignation.

The Pope thanked Roman Catholics around the world, and said he was resigning for the good of the church.  He made his announcement earlier this week saying that did not feel he was strong enough, at his age, to adequately lead the world's Roman Catholics.
