Farewell Benedict XVI

Monthly Prayer Leaflet for the Rosary Teams

Our theme for the year:
“You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit”

As I write this editorial, I am still very moved by the announcement of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVIth’s Retirement.

At the time you read this, his successor on the throne of Peter will have been elected by the Conclave. It is only just a week that the International Committee of the Rosary was meeting in Rome. At the second last general audience, on Wednesday 6th of February, the Holy Father took my hands in his and I placed in them a scarf of the Rosary Teams. From now on, in his retirement, Benedict XVI will watch over the Rosary teams and, as he has wished in his last public homily on Ash Wednesday, we too will support him in our prayer.

The reality of our life helps us to understand and accept the decision of the Pope. In the light of the mystery of the Annunciation of the Kingdom, our witness of faith and of Christian life takes on all its importance. May the Holy Spirit make of us new men and women capable of compassion, of justice and fraternity towards our brothers and sisters, by opening the doors of our homes to allow in the light of faith.
