BE NOT AFRAID
AUSTRALIA'S most senior Catholic says that the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI caught him by surprise
H.E. CARD. George Pell
Pope Benedict has always loved the Church and worked to do what was best for her. His resignation came as a surprise to me. We thank him for his years of devoted leadership and service, and his brilliant teaching. We’ll pray for him as he enters retirement. We must also pray for the church as she prepares to choose the next successor of St Peter.
