Thank you, dear Pope Benedict, for the blessing that you have been to all of us, and may God bless you richly in the days ahead!

Here are the words of our beloved Pope Benedict XVI as he gave his final address as Pope:

“Dear friends, I’m happy to be with you, surrounded by the beauty of creation and your well-wishes which do me such good. Thank you for your friendship, and your affection. You know this day is different for me than the preceding ones: I am no longer the Supreme Pontiff of the Catholic Church, or I will be until 8 o’clock this evening and then no more.

I am simply a pilgrim beginning the last leg of his pilgrimage on this Earth. But I would still … thank you … I would still with my heart, with my love, with my prayers, with my reflection, and with all my inner strength, like to work for the common good and the good of the church and of humanity. I feel very supported by your sympathy.

Let us go forward with the Lord for the good of the church and the world. Thank you, I now wholeheartedly impart my blessing. Blessed be God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Good night! Thank you all!”

Dear Lord, please continue to bless Your Church and please guide with great care those who are entrusted with the duty of choosing the one who will shepherd Your flock.
