It hasn't happened in 600 years, but at the end of the month Pope Benedict will leave the papacy under his own power.

The Vatican announced the pending resignation Monday morning. Reports quote the pope's brother in Germany as saying Benedict's doctor told him not to take transatlantic trips for health reasons.
