A New Pope

Like you, with great amazement I found out that Pope Benedict XVI resigned.

Chosen as the Pope is a great honor and distinction; Christians the world over do not expect that person to give up the title and the papal office. But the true question here is: Isn’t the Pope human after all, just like the rest of us? Isn’t he allowed to change his mind and his priorities as much as we are allowed by the divine? I believe that he is and that he has the latitude to let go of his office.

I wish the retired Pope Benedict XVI a healthy life. I wish new Pope Francis I much strength, courage, wisdom and compassion to fulfill his mission. I pray for both of them and for all of us to be able to create together the much needed acceptance and unity in the Christian faith.
