Pope thanks pilgrims for their support, further explains reason behind resignation
http://en.romereports.com "These days have not been easy," said Benedict XVI. "But I've felt, almost physically... the strength of your prayers." In his first public appearance after announcing his resignation, the Pope was interrupted with applause
during the weekly general audience. His message echoed the short speech he read in Latin, when he announced his resignation Monday morning. He added "I cannot carry out the Petrine ministry with the strength it requires."
