For reasons of health and advanced age, Pope Benedict XVI will resign on February 28, 2013.

I can imagine that people within the walls of the Vatican (and more than a few cardinals around the world and their confreres) are running around right now like ants under an upturned stone.
Catholic church reform people, this is your special challenge.
You have less than a month to: get better organized, draw together, pick your words carefully, and make your voices heard.
