“Pope Benedict XVI has been a great 21st century leader of the Roman Catholic Church. He is an outstanding theologian and a saintly man, beloved by Catholics from around the world. We are sorry about his resignation, and we pray that he will regain his strength and health in his remaining time with us. We are confident in the Holy Spirit’s guidance of the Church and that in His providence another excellent Pope will be chosen.”
