Roman Catholic priest Monsignor Joselito Asis, secretary-general of the influential Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, shows the letter of the Vatican to the Papal nuncio to Manila on the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI during a press conference in Manila on February 12, 2013. People across the mainly Catholic Philippines feel regret, gratitude and sympathy after Pope Benedict XVI announced plans on February 11 to resign, a presidential spokesman said. The Catholic Church entered uncharted waters on February 12 after Pope Benedict XVI's shock announcement that he would become the first pontiff to resign of his own free will in 700 years.
