This Doesn't Seem to Have Caused the Stir I Would Have Thought

Zenit tells us that the Holy Father gave an interview to a Spanish-language newspaper, in which he said:
Speaking on Pope Benedict XVI's decision to retire, Pope Francis said it was a “great gesture,” which opened the door to the creation of the institution of the Popes-emeritus. 
He said, "As we live longer, we get to an age at which we cannot carry on with things,” adding, “I will do the same as he did..."

Okay, not quite that earth-shaking, he continued:
"...ask the Lord to enlighten me when the moment comes and tell me what I have to do, and he will tell me for sure."
