The University Thanks and Prays for Pope Benedict
The academic community of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross would like to express immense gratitude to the Holy Father Benedict XVI for "his rich and fruitful Magisterium" and prays fervently for him and his intentions. At the same time, she invokes the Holy Spirit's help for the future Roman Pontiff.
The Prelate of Opus Dei, our University Chancellor H.E. Msgr. Javier Echevarría, conveyed these feelings well, emphasizing that Benedict XVI offered "a humble and generous example of service to the Church and to the world."
Reflections and Responses from Professors at the Holy Cross
The Holy Father's decision to resign from his office as Bishop of Rome and Successor of St. Peter has opened up public opinion to an inevitable discussion: What is the meaning of this choice? What meaning has Pope Benedict himself given it? Some professors at the Holy Cross reflect and respond.
