Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation in February 2013 at age 85, after eight years as head of the Roman Catholic Church. As pope, the German Joseph Ratzinger championed a “culture of life” on issues such as abortion, encouraged the “new evangelism” of the church, and engaged in technology, including operating his own Twitter account.
