Happy 91st Birthday Your Holiness

 

“I would say that the Spirit does not exactly take control of the affair, but rather like a good educator…leaves us much space, much freedom, without entirely abandoning us…. Probably the only assurance he offers is that the thing cannot be totally ruined. There are too many contrary instances of popes the Holy Spirit would obviously not have picked.”

Cardinal Ratzinger, 1997

  1. Happy birthday, but can’t really say I miss him. One advantage Francis has is that he has brought the cancer into view. Benedict seemed to reduce the symptoms enough that it was hard to recognize the extent of the damage.
