Snapshots of Pope Benedict's Papacy

February 12, 2013
Pope Benedict XVI's papacy includes many, many special moments. So we've decided to share some of our favourite moments in a series of blogs entitled, Snapshots of Pope Benedict. As we approach February 28th- the date of his official resignation- we remember and give thanks for Pope Benedict's faithful service, leadership and tender humanity. We begin this series with an image of Pope Benedict in a quiet moment of prayer with his brother Msgr. Georg Ratzinger. We hope you enjoy.
Special thanks to Catholic News Service for allowing us to share these images with you.
