Father Plate of St. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church and Robert Costello, head of Oratory Prep, tell their reactions to the news. What do you think of the Pope's resignation?
On Monday morning, the Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XVI plans to resign at the end of February after eight years of service. This is the first time in 600 years that a pope has resigned, rather than die, while in office, according to a CNN report. The pope, who is 85-years-old, said he is resigning due to advanced age. Father Brian Plate at St. Teresa of Avila Roman Catholic Church in Summit made the following statement: "Pope Benedict XVI served the church for over six decades.

Robert Costello, Head of Oratory Prep — a Roman Catholic school in Summit …
