Today, February 11, 2018, marks five years since Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation. I remember it like it was yesterday.
Recently, the pope-emeritus published a short note to a newspaper in response to an inquiry about how he was faring, a response that radiated with his characteristic warmth and wisdom:
It’s a great grace, in this last, at times tiring, stage of my journey, to be surrounded by a love and goodness that I could have never imagined.
Today, I simply post a link over to the Spiritual Friendship blog, where Ron Belgau has written about the pope emeritus’ writings on friendship with Christ.
May God bless the remaining days of the life of this remarkable disciple.
