The life of Pope Benedict leaves in the Church and the world a trace of deep love for Christ, the Word of the Father, and the ineffable service to the reconciliation of Peoples.
We remember his words at the beginning of the Pontificate with which he has guided his entire Petrine ministry:
My true program of government is not to do my will, not to follow my own ideas, but to put myself, together with the whole Church, to listen to the word and the will of the Lord and let myself be led by Him, in such a way that it is he himself who leads the Church in this hour of our history.
With a grateful heart, the Claretian missionaries join the Church in living out the mystery of death and Resurrection of Christ in the passage to the Father of Pope Emeritus Benedict.
