Francis said he would consider doing what his predecessor Benedict XVI did last year and retire if he felt he could no longer do the job, saying he would step aside “even if it does not appeal to some theologians.”

“I see it as the generosity of the people of God. I try to think of my sins, my mistakes, not to become proud. Because I know it will last only a short time,” he said.
