I see the Pope isnt up for the job anymore and is to leave.... why do they choose such old men to hold this job, surely it shouldnt go with age how wise or good someone is...it seems he will be the first pope to resign in 600 years from the post.

Erm, the Pope is chosen by God, who is the wisest human being in the planet, as we all know, so I don't honestly think it's the sort of thing we should be getting involved in, do you?

The last Pope was not home-schooled; he was German and home-schooling is illegal there. God was not home-schooled or schooled anywhere as there would be no point since he had everything and therefore knows how it all works.

Kinda greedy how they couldn't even choose between the most popular two Beatles to name him after, and ended up just giving him two names.

He was considered an exceptionally young pope and he was chosen after John Paul I died suddenly after being pope for a very short time.
