Benedict XVI:The Pope Emeritus
Available on backorder
This excellent new documentary produced in Europe on the life and papacy of Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) shows us the great milestones of his life: renowned theology professor, prolific author, expert at the Second Vatican Council, longtime collaborator of John Paul II, and his pontificate that ended with a surprise: his resignation at the age of 86 years old. His battles for defending the faith and for transparency within the Church provoked both support and criticism. It was a long Way of the Cross for this great churchman that ended with a master lesson of humility, giving way to his successor.
