The Pope said in a book last year that he would not hesitate to be the first pope to resign voluntarily for more than 700 years, if he felt he could no longer physically, psychologically and spiritually to manage the Catholic Church.

Lombardi noted that the Pope was held together very well during his trip to his native Germany, and said it was clear that he is still able to deal with the obligations very difficult.
