Farewell, But Not Good-bye

Yesterday was Pope Benedict XVI's final Papal Audience, and St. Peter's Square was packed.
He looked old and tired, this job takes a LOT out of a person.  Serving the Lord's people is not an easy task.  Pope Benedict XVI made some serious strides toward reunification of Eastern Orthodoxy as well as with SSPX.  Let us pray his successor continues these efforts and that one day soon we'll see a much more unified Church.

May God bless His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI in today, his final day as pope; and may he continue to enrich the Church in his new role/title of Bishop Emeritus of Rome.

Amen.
