In this morning's article, it is claimed that the cardinals reported that various lobbies within the Holy See were consistently breaking the sixth and seventh commandments, namely "thou shalt not steal" and "thou shalt not commit adultery"
The "stealing" was in particular related to the Vatican Bank, IOR, whilst the sexual offences were related to the influence of an active gay lobby within the Vatican.

Whatever the reason, I tend to find least persuasive the argument that he was getting old. It seems absurd to me that after 600 years, where every predecessor before him dies in office, he somehow thinks it should be different for him.
I have no clue what his real motivations were, but this age and health thing makes no sense to me.
