I will be very surprised if the Pope steps down. For one, that last Pope to step down was over 600 years ago and under extreme conditions. The current
Pope has always taught of the trials, for man kind, that Christ went through before his death and what a wonderful gift that was. I believe that he
will view this as his mission to stick it out, and serve man, until the end. It's interesting though, that the Church has no official rules on how to
deal with a situation such as this. If I'm correct, a pope must verbally state his regignation in order to step down so if the current Pope never
regains the use of his voice what will happen?
