Amanda from Wales is among the faithful gathered at St. Peter’s.  She sees the Pope’s resignation as:

(Amanda) “Very unusual, but it’s quite courageous.”

But adds being here for Pope Benedict’s last Angelus is:

(Amanda) “Marvelous.  Yeah, yeah, it’s marvelous.”

Maria P. instead says she is sad because he is leaving, and recalls the last time the gravely-ill former Pope John Paul II addressed the crowds, and he was unable to speak.  Massimo from Rome says it doesn’t matter where the next Pope is from.  ”They already have had two foreigners,” he said, “The most important thing is that he is replaced by someone young and dynamic.”
