To Your Holiness,

I heard that you’re stepping down due to old age. While that’s fine and dandy, when last I heard, no pope has resigned since the year 1413. Plus, I know that popes usually worked until they die.

So, what’s the excuse for your resignation? I already won’t accept the official response to the question, as I assume that they’re trying to speak for you. I’m ashamed to think that someone like you would just throw in the towel, but maybe it’s for the best.
