    In a move that shocked the Catholic world, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would resign on February 28, citing his advanced age and health. He is the first pope to step down in six centuries. The Vatican’s spokesman said the announcement of a new leader could come as early as Easter. Northwestern University religion professor Cristina Traina talks about Benedict’s legacy of conservatism and tenure during a period racked by the Church’s sex abuse scandal.
