Pope Emeritus Benedict: I’m Fine. I Live Like a Monk.

Pope Emeritus Benedict gave a brief interview to a German journalist recently.

The journalist’s description of the Pope Emeritus paints a portrait of someone who is frail but functioning. “I’m fine,” the Pope Emeritus said, “I pray and read. I live like a monk.”

I hope he is happy and at peace in his retirement. The Church and the world needs his prayers.

    While I would never ask for more than he has already done, it would be nice if it turned out that he is finding time for writing. The world needs his intellect.

    I think he did the right thing, stepping down from the Papacy. I think he will live longer without the burdens of the huge job he held.
