Indeed the pope emeritus is a man of humility. He is an example for our times when men who crave for power, wealth and attention, cling on to positions as if it were a birthright, an inheritance.
May Pope Benedict's example teach us that humility is far beyond dressing simply. It takes guts to step down and leave the golden throne!
His example will SHAME people who cling on to positions of power, who think they are doing God's will, who think they are fulfilling their mandate, when in fact their only desire is to fulfill their lust and greed!
If you are looking for the humblest man, do not look at someone who dresses simply but is full of hate and pride. Do not look for someone who always smiles and is friendly in public, but is in fact hateful and conceited, shunning the company of people he thinks are inferior than he is.
What these liberals wackos now enjoy and call as the Francis Revolution would not have happened if a humble worker in the Lord's vineyard names Benedict, did not have the courage and humility to admit that it is time to let go.
Benedict is the man of courage and humility.
Thank you Pope Francis for proclaiming that truth!
God bless our pope and our pope emeritus!
