CWN Editor's Note: Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI said “I believe I did well” by resigning, and voiced regret that some of his friends and supporters “did not want to believe that it was a conscious decision,” in an interview with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera. The newspaper reported that the former Pope looked thin and frail, and his voice was weak, but he was clear in rejecting “conspiracy theories” that suggested his resignation was forced.
