Pope Benedict XVI
Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation in February 2013 at age 85, after eight years as head of the Roman Catholic Church. As pope, the German Joseph Ratzinger championed a “culture of life” on issues such as abortion, encouraged the “new evangelism” of the church, and engaged in technology, including operating his own Twitter account.
