Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has died

+JMJ+Early this morning I saw on YouTube that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has died. He was 95. I’ve been expecting it for a while now but I still can’t believe it’s happened. It is the end of an era. 

I have so many of his books, have only read a few of them. Adding reading the unread ones up on the to-read list. I’ll write about it here. Stay tuned.

Thank you for reading. Please pray for the repose of Pope Benedict’s soul. He was and is beloved by so many, including me. +JMJ+

Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI,
April 16, 1927-December 31, 2022
