What was wrong, was that this happened under Saint John Paul, who was so loved, too much time went by before something was seriously done to correct it. Ratzinger never got the love, just the blame. In truth, he has done many good things, and I think his retirement is a good thing. I think it's better to have someone who is younger, healthier and able to mutlitask more. I think this is a very healthy move.
