Pope Benedict XVI to resign

I am sorry to read that Pope Benedict XVI is resigning. He has faithfully led the Catholic Church, advanced the Christian faith and theology and is an inspiration to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. His many writings will continue to inspire those who read and study theology and his liturgical legacy is of great benefit for the life of the Catholic Church and Christians world-wide.

May God be with the pope and the Catholic Church at this time and lead the Catholic Church in the process of choosing his successor.

Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. - Pope Benedict XVI, from his homily at the Inaugural Mass of his pontificate, April 24, 2005
