Both 'Black Pope' and 'White Pope' resigned, coincidence?

Thread: 'Black Pope' to stand down - a battle has been fought between the Jesuits and the conservative Opus Dei
By Richard Owen - The Times - Europe [link to catholiccitizens.org]

The head of the Jesuits, known as the "Black Pope" because of his black robes, is to step down voluntarily for the first time in the order's 500-year history.

Father Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, a Dutch prelate who has been Jesuit Superior General since 1983, resigned after tensions between the liberal-minded Jesuits and more conservative forces in the Roman Catholic Church. Since the election of Pope Benedict XVI last April a battle has been fought between the Jesuits and the conservative Opus Dei for control of the Vatican's media operations.

The Vatican said that Father Kolvenbach wanted to "hand the baton to a younger man", and that Pope Benedict XVI had given his blessing to the move. Father Kolvenbach will stand down in 2008, when he is 80. The Jesuits, the largest Catholic order, are said to have led opposition to the election of Pope Benedict.

"The black pope" is a nickname given to the Father General of the Society of Jesus. When the Jesuits were the most prestigious, influential missionary order in the world, the people of Rome began to speak jokingly of their head as a second pope. They called him "the black pope" because he wore the Jesuits' black clerical garb, in contrast to the real pope, who wore white and became known as "the white pope."
