Does Pope Francis resign? This is known about the supposed departure of the pontiff – 2024-03-17 07:17:23

The arrival of Pope Francisco was marked by the historic and unusual event of the resignation of his predecessor, Benedict XVI, and now, rumors point to the possibility that this could happen again.

In an autobiography, written with the Italian journalist Fabio Marchese Ragona, Francis describes crucial moments in his life and their intersection with world events (World War II, the Argentine dictatorship, intrigues in the Vatican) and how all this together can affect his priorities as Pope.

What did Pope Francis say about resigning from the papacy?

In the book, the Argentine delves into many aspects of his life and work and there is a part where he points out something that has caused some intrigue. And, according to the pontiff, the papacy is a job for life, but In the case of “a serious physical impediment”, you have already left a written resignation letter. The letter has also already been deposited in the Vatican Secretariat of State.


“But this is a remote hypothesis, because I really don’t have such serious reasons that make me think about resigning,” he wrote, however. “Some over the years may have expected that sooner or later, perhaps after some recovery, I would make an announcement of that kind, but there is no such risk: thank the Lord, I enjoy good health and, God willing, “I still have many projects to do.”

Although his health has been greatly affected in recent years, Francisco assures that he has no plans to resign nor that his health problems require him to do so. In a new memoir, he says that he still has “many projects to do.”

Francisco, 87, will tell many details of his life in his biography “Life: My story in history” (Life: mi historia en la historia), which will appear on March 19, the 11th anniversary of his coronation as pope. The evening newspaper Corriere della Sera published extensive passages in its Thursday edition.
