Are any of us strong enough?

As I hear the news today
That the pope has resigned
I ponder on the question
Are any of us strong enough?

Pope Benedict says he's too old
Not strong enough in body and mind
But can anyone in ministry say
That they're strong enough all the time?

It's something I'll ponder on
Since it feels so wrong to me
That society should impose so much
Where even the Pope feels it's not for he

God calls people to ministry
Surely He knows His plan
Perhaps age was what was needed
But I'm sure the pope does all he can

Of course these are just my thoughts
And my own situation influences me
But I feel a sadness today
And pray that God's will continue to be
