The man who could throw Italy into turmoil after the general election on 24 and 25 February began conversationally, but was soon roaring his execration of his country's established politicians to a crowd of several thousand.
"They're terrorised," he cried. "They're frightened because this movement" – he waved a hand over the square – "is becoming something extraordinary." With a gesture, he had gathered everyone present into something he said was "no longer a movement, but a community".
"This could be a real tsunami. Those polls … we're at twice that level," said Grillo. And then, half-audibly, he added: "Unfortunately."

Given that he would be the first pope to resign due to old age in 600 years, wouldn't that make him a coward?
Perhaps he has lost his marbles and not be able to conduct any business. then he would retire to the vatican and be ill as long as it takes for him to pass....
Not resign and raise more questions over faith.
If his actions truly are motivated by age then he is a selfish thoughtless individual.
If however he was given no choice then he is just as cowardly for not comming out and saying so to the public directly as is possible.
That's very harsh!
Just because he's not being selfless doesn't mean he's being selfish. There's a middle ground which the vast majority of us mere mortals inhabit.
