Thoughts on Benedict

Monsters and Critics has a year-end retrospective on the year for the Papacy.

And while we're on the Papacy, I saw this story about the Pope's views on the sinless life not being boring. I thought of this, precisely because I pointed out that Benedict's life (like that of John Paul's) stands in stark contrast to the modern view that a sinless life is unattainable. And similarly , the fact that he stresses long-held teachings (like no communion to those who divorced and remarry) is testament to the fact that he believes in following the whole Gospel not just bits and pieces.
