Francisco: Pope of light
In the midst of Lent, in the year 2013, the highest authority in front of it, which should lead the church until his death as usual except on rare occasions, launches the world his resignation. Pope Benedict XVI announces resigned.
Many took this as a lack resignation puts almost before the excommunication. How a pope resign? And how dare you say that you do resign because he failed the physical and the spiritual? Osama? Tell the world and the Catholic world was resigning for lack of spiritual strength? How, spiritual force is given by the Holy Spirit? How then left saying that lack of spiritual forces, resigned? Woe to those who feel so and accuse him. None have understood in his heart and reason.
Benedict XVI leads us to live a Lent brings us back to the experience of the emergence of the church. At the time John the Baptist, announced in the desert that humanity should become, out of their misery, leaving behind their aberrations, their lies, their sins and become. Becoming God because he approached the men, one, whom he did not come even to his sandals.
Benedict XVI warned in his resignation a church that dies if not opened to the light of Christ, if not again become. Failure to do girl, virgin. Complaint with his attitude to his 86 years of his physical strength, health and spiritual strength diminished but full of the Holy Spirit are no longer sufficient for that church relive dying faith.
And his immense love for Christ and the church, the faithful and to the world, his resignation will allow the Holy Spirit to revive it: faith. Experiment and live Christ, transmit his infinite love and mercy.
