Pope Benedict XVI: Evangelist to the World

Pope Benedict XVI: Evangelist to the World: Through his lifetime of bridge building, Benedict XVI proposes to be the Virgil to the Dantes of our generation, calling for both a New Evangelization and a new metanoia — a sacramental return to Christ and His Church. The Father of the West who had guided the poet has become the Holy Father who did the unthinkable, and now he wishes simply to be called Father Benedict even amidst the celebrations of his service.

Happy 90th birthday to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
