Danke, Heiliger Vater!

Humble, holy, devout, scholarly, and inspirational are just a few words that have been thrown around in the past few weeks, following the Holy Father's initial announcement of his resignation.  Yet what can we say to such an amazing man, the Vicar of Christ, who has led his Church with so much faith and love over the past seven years?  For an overwhelming number of Catholics a simple Thank You will do the trick.

Reflecting on Pope Benedict's papacy, it struck me that throughout my entire life as an active (that is seriously practicing) Catholic, Benedict has been my Pontiff.  He is the one who has inspired me to search deeper into my faith and to seek the truth through Church Tradition and Scripture.  He has been a huge part of my life as well as an indirect teacher and mentor.  He has been a holy shepherd that has spread the love of Christ to each of his faithful, and for that I am truly thankful.  

So Thank You Holy Father for your:

We will keep you in our prayers; confident that we will be in yours...
