Pope Benedict Resigns

My first Pope was John XXIII, who I still miss. None since was able to continue his vision.

To have a Pope leave his office is so unusual. This has never happened in modern times. I can’t fault an old man for wanting some peace in his last days. I won’t speak ill of the living, not now. But the best leadership in the Catholic Church for a long time has come from its ordinary members and the clergy who serve them directly.
