It gives me such immense joy and interior strength to read the wonderful words of pope em Benedictus.
I feel, very deeply, that he is a holy man. During his eight year pontificate,I always knew that we could trust every word he said. There never existed even the slightest doubt.
I think that his way of writing reminds a lot of Cardinal Newman. "Heart speaks to Heart".
Pope em Benedictus has never failed to speak to our hearts.
We, my husband and I, are now trying to read and reread as much as possible by him.
One article in a catholic magazine in our country had as headline: "THANK GOD FOR POPE BENEDICTUS!" It went on to say that "when the day comes that we no longer have him as pope, we will come to understand how much we will miss him." The article was written before the resignation of pope Benedictus became known.
But of course, I can only add that my husband and I knew, ever since 2005, that we were extremely blessed to have someone like pope em Benedictus as "our" pope.

I know it's an old post, but I wanted to express my feelings herewith that it's sad he no longer is tweeting there.

God bless.
In our hectic and noisy world we find strength and inner peace with prayer.
