VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict, speaking in his last Sunday address before his resignation, said he was following God's wishes and that he was not abandoning the Roman Catholic Church.

The pope, addressing tens of thousands of people in St. Peter's Square, also said he would continue to serve and love the Church by praying and meditating after his historic abdication on Thursday. He said God had called him "to climb the mountain".
