Why is the pope quitting his job?
Care to enlighten me?
He is old and tired, not in the best of health and desires to retire from the daily responsibilities of Pope. It is what we old people do and live for, to retire from working. Pope is a big job, not to be taken lightly.
The official report is stating failing heath.
He is too old to fulfill his obligations as he should.
Stepping aside due to his age, and his failing health.
His failing health, due to old age. Being a pope requires a lot of travel and responsibility, so he feels that he can no longer do his job.

The official reason is his health, but there are probably other reasons that we will never hear about.
He is quitting because he is to old to do it any more
He has a failing heart. He had a second pacemaker put in last year, and was advised not to take anymore long trips. Part of being the pope involves traveling.
He is leaving his job because he's old and has a heart condition. His doctor says he shouldn't be touring the world anymore because it's too hard on his body.
