All about Pope Benedict's intention of resignation to be found straight from the Vatican are available here.

Bishop Larry Silva's response to the resignation is found in the Diocese of Honolulu official website.

Mass of Thanksgiving for Pope Benedict XVI:
Bishop Larry Silva invites all to a special Mass on Wednesday, February 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace, Honolulu, in which we will give thanks to God for the Petrine ministry of Pope Benedict XVI, who will leave office the following day.  We will also pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit on the Cardinals who will elect his successor. 

Thank you, Pope Benedict, for your excellent leadership to our Church!

Let us continue to pray for Pope Benedict XVI. We pray for our Church as it undergoes another transition. Our God reigns! (Rev 19:6) Christ's resurrection brings us eternal hope, but we never tire in our prayers: we pray for a new pope who will serve Christ and represent him with much dignity and grace.
