Priests from St. Stanislaus in Lansdale and Corpus Christi Church in Upper Gwynedd were 'surprised' at the news, and called Pope Benedict XVI's resignation an 'act of humility'
With the announcement Monday of Pope Benedict XVI resigning at the end of February due to failing health — something that has not occurred in more than 600 years — local priests of Catholic churches in the Montgomeryville-Lansdale area were first and foremost surprised at the news.

"Painfully," was Beynon's answer on how she was able to race in flip-flops. "No clue," was Ehleben's answer to the same question. The group of girls were at the fundraiser to collect canned goods as part of a senior project for …
