CTS authors reflect on Pope Benedict – Archbishop Vincent Nichols

Over the coming days, the CTS blog is going to remember the Holy Father’s achievements in his own words and gather some thoughts from our authors on his legacy.

Archbishop of Westminster and President of the CTS Vincent Nichols sent us this first reflection:

“As the news of Pope Benedict’s decision to resign from the Office of Supreme Pontiff sinks in, I realise how much he will be missed. We shall miss his warmth of character and manner. We shall miss his marvellous teaching, which has always had such depth and clarity.

Yet we shall not forget him and we shall continue to pray for him just as he will include us, and all the Church, in his prayers and reflections. We thank God for his ministry as our Pope and we ask God to guide the Church in its choice of his successor.”
