Pope Benedict XVI


Pope Benedict XVI 2005-2013

Before Benedict's election he was a controversial member of the church. After his election he brought back the traditional words of the Consecration of the Blessed Sacrament and by so doing conformed more closely with tradition.
He also allowed some Latin Masses as "extraordinary" (meaning with special permission or agreement) unlike the "normal" Masses.

He basically acknowledged that the Society of Saint Pius X was not excommunicated. He never exposed The Instruction and it remained in place.

As he was getting quite old, he resigned.
The question is: Can he resign since God is the One in control and is the only One to remove a pope.

Pope Benedict died in 2022 after living some nine years past his resignation.
