Your Favorite Pope Benedict Moment

PopeBenedictXVIThe news of Pope Benedict’s resignation brought me to think of so many reasons why I am grateful for the gift of his Papacy. My earliest memory (and one of my favorites) follows.

I would be very interested to hear yours! Comment away!

So many memories! I was in Saint Peter’s Square at the announcement that Card. Ratzinger was elected Pope. I was next to a Jew and a Muslim. And both of them began jumping up and down hugging each other, and me, shouting, “We have a Pope! We have a Pope!” In that moment, I knew that Unity and respect in diversity is possible! :) Thank you Pope Benedict! 
And you? What’s your favorite memory?
