Vatican City, Feb 28, 2015 / 10:30 am (CNA/EWTN News).-
Two years after his historic resignation from the papacy, Benedict XVI’s presence continues to be felt by those around him as he keeps his promise to remain in quiet and prayerful service to the Church and the world.
“We always know that Pope Emeritus Benedict is present in the Vatican, with his prayers,” said Fr. Scott Borgman, English-language official for the Pontifical Accademy for Life. This presence, he told CNA in a Feb. 10 email interview, “is a very reassuring affection which we experience often.”
At 8 p.m. on Feb. 28, 2013, Benedict XVI stepped down from the papal throne, less than three weeks after announcing his resignation to the world.
