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

Pope Emeritus Benedict: I’m Fine. I Live Like a Monk. June 9, 2013

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
